What is MI CASA?

The Multicultural Innovative Community for Academic Success and Achievement (MI CASA) is a Hispanic Serving Institute (HSI) Grant Program federally funded by the Department of Education. Our goal is to provide a safe space that feels like home away from home. MI CASA provides extra support for new and continuing Latino/a/x students to reach their academic goals.

Student Testimonials

“More than just a place to learn, MI CASA has become a home away from home for me. Pleasant faces combine with the welcoming atmosphere to create an environment that truly encourages academic growth and a sense of belonging.”

“They have also help me know that English is my second language. I can be comfortable speaking in Spanish and English and that I shouldn’t be ashamed of speaking both languages.”
