CSUSM has many programs that are designed to help underserved student populations succeed at the university. Programs such as the Education Opportunity Program (EOP) has a dynamic set of programs aimed to assit students on their path toward their degree. One of the many programs they have is a partnership that incorporates elements of the non-profit organization, Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID). The overall goal of the AVID organization and initiatives are to provide academic and social support in order to provide students with the skills and motivation they need for academic sucess. Here are some links to progams at CSUSM incorporating AVID.
