The purpose of the Cesar E. Chavez Higher Education Speaker Series is to advance the social justice and cultural awareness agenda that Cesar Chavez and others worked so hard to achieve. Each year, a forum of distinguished panelists is invited to provide an intellectual and thought-provoking opportunity for students, faculty, staff and communities to gain a greater understanding of the most complex issues to face our nation. It is in that spirit that we celebrate this legacy with our annual Cesar E. Chavez Higher Education Speaker Series event.

Background: For a generation of Americans, Cesar E. Chavez (1927-1993) was the voice of farmworkers and of the Mexican American people. Chavez earned this position through his role as founder and organizer of the United Farm Workers union, through his leadership in the Chicano Movement, and through his crucial role in politics. As a result of his efforts, the concerns of Mexican American and other Latino peoples in the United States were, for the first time, brought into the national political debate. (Botz, 2006).

Rocklin campus is located at 5100 Sierra College Blvd. Rocklin. There is a $3 parking fee on campus. Parking permits are available at dispensers located on the campus parking lot.
