Reading, Advising, & Mentoring Program (RAMP)
TRIO Student Support Services
Celebrating 30 Years at Cal Poly Pomona!
Check out our Fall 2018 newsletter, RAMP Ed.
The Reading, Advising, & Mentoring Program is a TRIO Student Support Services program funded to serve 250 eligible Cal Poly Pomona students.
As a federally funded U.S. Department of Education TRIO Student Support Services project, RAMP’s mission is to increase the retention and graduation rates of low-income, first-generation college students, and students with disabilities at Cal Poly Pomona. RAMP fosters academic excellence, leadership development, and cultural awareness.
As established by the U.S. Department of Education, the purpose of TRIO SSS is to “provide opportunities for academic development, assist students with basic college requirements, and motivate students toward the successful completion of their postsecondary education.”
RAMP's goal is to provide academic and personal support to participants so they persist at the University and graduate in a timely manner. RAMP's core services are reading tutorials; supplemental academic, career, and personal advising; and peer mentoring. Our services help students improve reading and study strategies, enhance personal growth, and develop professional skills.
RAMP is housed in the Learning Resource Center (LRC), which also promotes student success through its various services.
