WELCOME TO THE CHICAN@/LATIN@ STUDIES PROGRAM AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN, MADISON!

The University of Wisconsin-Madison will welcome students back to campus as scheduled for the start of fall classes on September 2.  Please check the University’s “Smart Restart” page for regular updates.  As classes begin, we will continue to make the health and safety of the entire CLS familia our top priority.  As we begin the semester, 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 “Pickup by Appointment at Memorial or Steenbock. 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.  The Program will not hold in-person Community Gatherings this Fall, but watch for other co-curricular programming as the semester progresses.  The Dígame Program will continue with UHS counselors available for remote meetings starting September 24th. For more information and guidelines for use of Ingraham Hall 3rd floor, please see the Program’s reoccupancy plan, which was approved in August. ¡Cuídense mucho!  We hope to see you soon.
