Welcome from the director


I would like to thank you for your interest in Western Michigan University's College Assistance Migrant Program. As a graduate of Western Michigan University, I know firsthand the exciting and endless opportunities that are available here, and I am excited to be able to provide you with the tools and resources to assist you in achieving your personal and professional goals.

As a first-generation Mexican college student from a farmworker background, I struggled with identifying resources and tools to assist in the completion of my college degree—especially in my first year at the University. I sought out information from friends and family and asked questions … lots of questions! I was very fortunate to have close individuals who assisted me throughout my education. That allowed me to obtain my bachelor’s degree in social work and continue on to obtain my master’s degree in social work.

At this program, our goal is to be that support for you. Our goals are to assist you in completing your first year successfully and continue in your higher education.

Please feel free to review all the information available to you on our website to assist in your decision of being part of the program, and feel free to contact us with any questions.

We are ready to support you as you embark on your educational journey!

¡Sí, Se Puede!
