The Collaborative

The Collaborative at Modesto Junior College provides activities and resources to enhance the academic and personal success of our students of color. Emphasis is placed on African American and Hispanic students. Our goal is to encourage and promote academic success as it relates to setting realistic academic and personal goals and effectively utilizing academic resources and support services to achieve desired results. We promote personal growth and development through self-analysis and intervention. While at the same time, we collaborate with local community-based organizations willing to serve as a resource for mentoring, enhancing professional skills, and/or broad based networking.
