Hispanic or Chicana/o/x

Your ethnicity, your identity, your background and values. They shape who you are and, more importantly, where you’re going. Let EWU help you get there.

Among all public Washington state universities, EWU has one of the highest percentages of Hispanic students in its freshman student body. The Chicana/o/x Studies Program serves as the main point of contact for Hispanic, Latinx and Chicanx students looking to build community at EWU.

EWU’s focus on community sets it apart from other universities in the state. EWU was home to Dr. Rudolfo Arevelo, the state’s first Hispanic university president and a first-generation college student who was the son of migrant workers. The EWU student representative to the Board of Trustees is Hispanic. And as a recent story in the region’s largest newspaper shows, EWU understands that college is a family affair, not just an independent decision.

Getting connected to EWU’s vibrant Hispanic community is simple.
