On behalf of the Center for Chicanx and Latinx Academic Student Success, known informally as el centro, we want you to know that we are here to support you academically, personally and emotionally. Our services include a range of programs and activities.

We have staff members who provide academic advising, counseling, internship and career services and tutoring, and facilitate formal and informal interactions with faculty members. It is our desire that you experience a sense of community and empowerment that will help you be successful on campus.

UC Davis stands to support and provide you with an environment of diversity and inclusion. We encourage you to be a part of our comunidad and work with el centro as you become more involved with student organizations on campus and progress as a future scholar.
