Our Priorities

The core mission of CCLASS is to provide an academic support space where students thrive as scholars and unique individuals. The center's practices and services are grounded in the following three priorities:

  • Transformational Growth: Developing academic and personal skills that foster strategic decision-making and navigation of institutional structures.
  • Self-efficacy: Acknowledging individual learning experiences as a foundation for autonomous goal setting with the objective of advancing their aspirational success.
  • Connections: Cultivating cultural and intentional partnerships that further the educational and academic retention of Chicanx and Latinx scholars.
