Reach for Success
This year the Center for Multicultural Academic Excellence (CMAE) will be holding Reach for Success, its biggest event, on April 19, 2014.
Reach for Success is an interactive campus visit for aspiring Ducks from across the state. Designed for 7th and 8th graders, the visit gives students a tangible college experience while fostering campus relationships. Visits like these not only plant seeds of learning into the minds of students - they physically bring them to a campus where they can see themselves as a part of the culture. The objective of this visit is to promote a sustainable learning environment for students. By visiting the U of O, they will gain an insiders’ perspective of what it means to be a college student. During the visit, both students and parents will build a community of support that will assist in the transition into higher education.This program invites students who are under-represented in higher education and facilitates a tour of campus resources, a student panel, keynote speaker and workshops. All activities have been chosen and designed to bring awareness to the students of their individual strengths while engaging them in conversations about college life. The day’s activities will take the student in and out of the classroom, allowing them to see learning as a multi-dimensional process.
If you have any questions about the Reach for Success program please contact our program coordinator, Allyson Trochez, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 541.346.9120.
