La Raza Alumni Association (LRAA)

La Raza Alumni Association (LRAA) is the oldest and largest Latino alumni group at California State University, Northridge.  Organized in 1992, the association's main objectives are to raise much needed funds for the scholarship program, support the Chicana and Chicano Studies Department, and create networking opportunities for alumni and current CSUN students.

Emphasizing the importance of education, LRAA funds its scholarships through a series of fundraising events.

Our department is very grateful for the gifts we have received over the years, but we are still very much in need of additional funds to support the research of our faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates. Charitable contributions can be submitted directly online through the College of Humanities (links to the left).

We thank you in advance for your interest and support.
