The Caminos Project in the News
This fall semester the College of Education will welcome its first cohort of approximately 100 students enrolled in the HSI Caminos Project, a student pipeline program aimed at increasing Latina/o and Hispanic students in the teaching profession. The project was funded in October 2017 through a 5-year Title V grant from the U.S. Department of Education for Developing Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSI), of which CSULB is one. The College of Education Dean, Dr. Shireen Pavri, serves as Principal Investigator, with day-to-day project leadership and oversight provided by Co-Project Directors, Tim Keirn and Dr. José Moreno, faculty in the Colleges of Education and Liberal Arts.
California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) received a $2.75 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education to enhance the teacher pipeline from Latina/o communities.
