About Us

CAMINOS stands for Cultivating Access and Mentoring through Institutional Networks and Opportunities for Success.

What is Project CAMINOS?

Project CAMINOS was established in 2019 through a Title V Hispanic Serving Institute (HSI) grant through the Department of Education. The program is dedicated to eliminate the equity gap by preparing underrepresented students for success and graduation through three pillars:
1. Outreach
2. Advising and Transition Program such as the Bronco Scholars Program
3. Faculty Development

Project CAMINOS seeks to support prospective students and their families through four workshop types. 

Additionally, the program supports early outreach college-going efforts.
