La CASA (Cultural Appreciation and Student Advocacy)

La CASA aims to increase engagement and provide support for Hispanic/Latine, low-income, and historically minoritized students regardless of ethnicity, culture, gender, and intersectional identities. Its purpose is to foster a sense of belonging among Hispanic/Latino students and the entire student body. La CASA will serve as a learning space and provide deliberate programming to highlight Hispanic/Latine, Asian American and Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander, Black/African American, and Indigenous populations.

The goal of MESA is to increase the number of historically underrepresented community college students (including African American, Native American, Hispanic/Latinx, Pacific Islander and women) who are interested in pursuing a STEM bachelor’s degree. Ultimately, we aim to diversify the STEM workforce by addressing challenges students like you face in education and career development.

We know that sometimes life makes it difficult to concentrate in class which can keep you from being academically successful. These things aren’t your fault! CBC, and our surrounding communities, offer students valuable resources to support you through hard times and support your well-being. We encourage you to take advantage of these resources—it’s what they’re here for!

Well-Being Resources

You can gain access to five federally-funded grant programs that aim to help students like you successfully achieve your workforce education goals. Whether it is financial assistance, help with academic planning, access to computers or even learning about what jobs are available to you, WEC is here to support you!
