Center for Multicultural Engagement and Inclusion

The CMEI supports students’ sense of belonging and affirms their identities by building community through participation in Met Media, student organizations, fraternities and sororities, racial equity and leadership programs, a student gathering space, and campus events.

College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP)

CAMP, a U.S. Department of Education grant-funded scholarship program, is designed to meet the academic, financial and social needs of migrant/seasonal farmworkers and their children in pursuing higher education. While the program provides its most intensive assistance during the first year of college, the CAMP team is available to assist students throughout their college experience.

First-Generation Initiatives

First Generation Initiatives supports students by providing community building opportunities, workshops on skills needed during and after college, as well as empowerment around leadership and the first-gen identity. We are honored to be a part of their educational journey and believe first generation students are powerful, resilient, and tenacious. They are #fearlessfirst. Welcome to our first-gen family!

Immigrant Services

The Immigrant Services Program supports and builds community for students who weren’t born in the U.S. or come from families with immigrant backgrounds. We help our DACA, undocumented, refugee and immigrant students succeed in college through writing and language development support, assistance with financial aid options and scholarship essays, social events, and resources around legal assistance or healthcare options.
