GANAS Career Pathways

December 06, 2021


Professor Juan Poblete (Professor of Literature and UCSC HSI Team Faculty) served as a co-PI for the Graduating and Advancing New American Scholars (GANAS) - Career Pathways project, a five-year, $3 million grant, which aims to improve academic and career outcomes for undergraduates and further advance the campus’s capacity to increase racial equity.

The proposal was inspired by UC Santa Cruz’s mission to help our Hispanic, first-generation, transfer, and low-income student populations complete their degrees, excel in the professional workforce, and contribute to multicultural communities.

The project has four goals: to increase achievement (passing rates) in courses identified as barriers to student success; to provide supplemental instruction; to increase career advising, internship opportunities, and financial literacy; and to build institutional capacity by providing coaching support to academic and student services and departments to identify and disrupt barriers in practices and policies that contribute to racial inequity.
