  • Development of strong skills in critical thinking, communication, theory and analysis.
  • Engagement with faculty who are experts in a variety of academic fields, and are active in research, publication and community service.
  • Attentive academic advising and mentoring to guide students in their careers and community engagement activities.
  • Flexible course formats, with a mix of in-person, fully online, and hybrid courses.
  • Connections to the robust community of Latino student groups on campus.
