Bienvenidos! Welcome to the Spring Quarter!
On behalf of the entire staff of the Center for Chicanx and Latinx Academic Student Success, known informally as el centro, we are thrilled to see you! It is our hope that you feel at home here to express yourself and to explore our diverse virtual programs and services designed for COVID-19 times.
At el centro, you will find friendly staff members who provide academic advising, counseling, internship & career services, tutoring, as well as formal and informal opportunities to interact with Davis faculty and staff members invested in your academic success. Especially during the pandemic, we have created many ways to stay connected, build up your sense of empowerment, and help you stay focused with timely access to campus resources!
UC Davis and el centro understand that our students come from all walks of life and personal journeys. We hope to provide a positive environment that reflects our students' diversity and includes the lived experience of the many students we serve. We encourage you to become a part of el centro comunidad. Together we will help you discover the path to make the most of your time at Davis. Whether your plans include research, student leadership, athletic achievement, community service, or building a completely new path, we are with you every step of the way. Adelante!
