Ambiciones Program Recognized by Excelencia in Education
Howard Community College’s Ambiciones program was selected as a “Program to Watch” by Excelencia in Education, an organization committed to Latino student success in college. Excelencia is dedicated to bringing attention to practices that work for Latino students through Examples in Excelencia; the only national effort to recognize evidence-based practices increasing Latino student success in higher education. “Programs to Watch” highlights the good work being done by scholars and practitioners across the country to increase Latino student success.
Ambiciones, which emerged in 2015, builds community among Hispanic/Latino students by providing networking opportunities, educational and recreational activities, and workshops with other Hispanic/Latino students and campus organizations. Through Ambiciones, students can receive specialized guidance and assistance with academic advising and tutoring, mentoring and coaching, financial aid, scholarship, and work study opportunities, career counseling and internships, as well as personal counseling.
