El Camino College Student Resources
The Reading Success Center is partially based on the Chaffey College model of Success Centers. The Center resembles the classroom environment and expectations, and students who participate are significantly more likely to succeed in their courses. The focus is more on experiences, designed by the Humanities Learning Teams that create an extension of the classroom
Umoja, (a Kiswahili word meaning unity) is a community and critical resource dedicated to enhancing the cultural and educational experiences of our California (CA) Community College students. On January 14, 2008, the Umoja Community was officially recognized by the Board of Governors as a legitimate statewide student success program. The Umoja Community serves at risk, educationally and economically disadvantaged students, believing that when the voices and histories of students are deliberately and intentionally recognized, students develop self-efficacy and a foundation for academic success. Umoja actively promotes student success for all students, with an emphasis on African American student success, through culturally responsive curriculum and practices. Chancellors and college presidents from across the community colleges act as a consortium to advise the Umoja Governing Board on program implementation and generate ideas for securing additional funding.
Black College Tours
Our program began 27 years ago with a vision to be the premiere Black College Tour program. The success of our program is evident by our sterling safety record, excellent relationships with admissions officials, and the positive impact of the tour on our participants. Our tours, without question, are a life changing experience. They motivate and inspire students to work harder then ever to achieve their educational goals. Since our program’s inception, we have successfully taken over 3,000 students on tour, assisting many of them with getting into the HBCU of their choice.

We aim to create an affirming academic and professional environment for African Americans with a particular focus on African American male students, faculty, staff, and administrators.
