PASOS stands for “Promotores Académicos Sembrando, Orientando y Sobresaliendo” (“Academic Promoters Seeding, Orienting and Overcoming”).  This mentorship program helps Chican@ and Latin@ students imagine the possibilities of attending graduate school. Through individual and group mentoring activities, graduate student mentors answer undergraduates’ questions about graduate study and guide them through the application process.

For more information, please contact  Mary Dueñas and Ivan Cabrera at and Mary and Ivan are both graduate students and fellows at the School of Education.
