On February 23, 2004, with a stellar group of faculty at the MCC, a  two hour symposium was held to introduce the first doctoral program in Chicana and Chicano Studies. 
In Fall 2005, the the first cohort of doctoral students arrived at UCSB. Almost twenty years later to the day, one of our distinguished alum, Associate Professor William Calvo-Quirós, retorna to give a presentation on his award-winning book, Undocumented Saints: The Politics of Migrating Devotions (Oxoford University Press, 2022). 
Professor Calvo-Quirós' presentation is one of the events commemorating the 20th anniversary of the first doctoral program in the nation to focus on Chicanas/os/x. We are beyond proud to sponsor a series of events this year and next highlighting the academic accomplishments of our doctoral graduates.
