What is MI CASA?

The Multicultural Innovative Community for Academic Success and Achievement (MI CASA) Center welcomes all students and employees at CRC. Our goal is to provide a safe space that promotes validation, growth, and fosters creativity. We want to provide a home away from home that will inspire and mobilize you to positively impact the Latinx community, and the world.

The Multicultural Innovative Community for Academic Success and Achievement (MI CASA) Center is a federal program funded by the Department of Education.

MI CASA provides extra support for new and continuing Latino/a/x students to reach their academic goals. These students can receive support from Success Coaches, a designated Counselor, receive priority registration, and be part of a new student community.

At this time we apologize for not being able to take in any more students for the MI CASA program. All students are always welcome to visit and use our center as needed and attend our events. If still interested, please fill out this Google Form to be placed on the waitlist to be notified when space becomes available.
