After attending Yakima Valley Community College, he enrolled at the University of Washington in 1968 where he quickly became a leading student activist.

He is currently Associate Professor of Chicano Studies and Adjunct Associate Professor of History and Latin American Studies at the UW. Professor Gamboa is the author of numerous articles and books on the history of Latinos in the Pacific Northwest, including Mexican Labor and World War II: Braceros in the Pacific Northwest, 1942-1947; and Nosotros, the Hispanic People of Oregon: Essays and Reflections, which won the Helen and Martin Schwarz Prize from the National Federation of State Humanities Councils.
Tour educates UW faculty, 20 June 2006 [cached]
"Don't be dissuaded by country music, conservative talk radio," joked Erasmo Gamboa, a UW associate professor of American ethic studies, who met the tour in Central Washington.
Some encouraged faculty members to bring their own teachings to that part of the state, including Gamboa, who has worked in Eastern Washington to collect oral histories from elderly Latinos.
He asked his visiting colleagues to consider expanding their research to the area and including local students in their work.Eastern Washington is different, he acknowledged, but that should not deter them from exploring research opportunities there.
