The CBS Academic Program is an integral part of the Center's Mission
Each fall approximately fifty students enroll in the CBS academic program. Historically, CBS admits as many as 75% of all first year Latino students attending Wayne State University.
The program is a two-year academic program designed to develop a solid intellectual and motivational foundation for success in college based on a student-centered, community-grounded, self-empowerment model.
The program offers courses in the History, Literature, and Culture of Latinos and Latin America. In addition, the Center operates a sophisticated advising, counseling and tracking program that includes an early-warning system, survival and success seminars, tutoring, personal counseling, and orientation to the university community.
