Project CHESS

Collaborative for Hispanics in Higher Education & Student Success

Project CHESS is a collaborative program of California Lutheran University and Moorpark College to help students find success and achieve their degree by engaging in the classroom, feeling academically capable, connecting to peers and the campus community, and focusing on careers.

Cal Lutheran and Moorpark College staff and faculty will leverage available resources and utilize shared strengths. Through collaboration and cooperation, the initiative will work to counter practices known to disadvantage Hispanic and other underrepresented students, particularly in the classroom, and create sustainable capacity and change.
