This paper examines the status and history of Chicano studies as an academic field of study. The paper describes the development of Chicano studies in terms of philosophical foundations, identifying the Chicano community, curriculum development, and institutional support. The genesis, shaping, and direction of Chicano studies were largely in the hands of college students. The history of Chicano studies indicates: (1) Chicano studies was more a result of a political ideology than of a solid philosophical position; (2) because of the diversity of the Chicano community, Chicano studies participants invented an idealized stereotype of the Chicano community, which was used as a battering ram to gain political concessions on campus; (3) the key issue in establishing the Chicano studies curriculum was its legitimacy; (4) as an undergraduate liberal art's degree, the Chicano studies curriculum is uncertain about the quality of its courses and its relation to career opportunities; and (5) the initial adversial relationship between Chicano studies and academia impacted the kinds of institutional support programs could acquire. The future of Chicano studies as a meaningful activity rests on its ability to survive day by day campus processes. It must reformulate the core concepts that initially gave it spark and energy. It must do so in such a way that it reflects acquired experience and the ever changing political complexion of academia and the communities that support it. (Contains 14 references.) (LP)
