CLS Graduation Page

Welcome to the Chican@ & Latin@ Studies Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. As classes continue, we will continue to make the health and safety of the entire CLS familia our top priority.  At this time, our staff is primarily working remotely, and Advisor Rachelle Eilers will meet remotely with students until further notice.  Contact her via email or Starfish to make an appointment. CLS Library materials are available to UW-Madison and community patrons. Contact Administrator Peter Haney for reference questions. For the time being, the Academic Resource Center and the CLS Library space are closed to the public.  Watch for news about CLS events and co-curricular programming as the semester progresses.  The Dígame Program will continue for the Spring with UHS counselors available for remote meetings. For more information and guidelines for use of Ingraham Hall 3rd floor, please see the Program’s reoccupancy plan, which was approved in August.  Please also check the University’s COVID-19 response page for information about new safety measures in place, including new testing requirements for students and employees and the Safer Badgers App.  ¡Cuídense mucho!  We hope to see you soon.
