Aztlán Center

The Aztlán Center is dedicated to the study of Chicanx, Latinx and Indigenous Peoples and Environments of the Southwest. This Center sponsors research, lectures and events, as well as community outreach. The focus of these activities is to advance knowledge on the campus related to the culture and history of the region, encourage the teaching of Southwest Studies, and to broaden the base of potential students for Chicanx Studies courses. 

Named after the homeland of the Aztec empire, the Aztlán Center honors the city of Pueblo’s history as the gateway to the Southwest and the indigenous people of the region. The Aztlán Center furthers CSU Pueblo’s Vision 2028 goal of becoming the people’s university of the Southwest by educating the community about the history of the region and aligns with CSU Pueblo’s goals as a Hispanic Serving Institution. 

The Aztlán Center is located in the University Library. For more information, please contact Deborah Espinosa, the Aztlán Center Director:, 719-369-4108.
