  • Latino Services Network
  • TULAY/Filipino American Student Success Program

that provide retention services leading to:

  • Transfer to baccalaureate institutions
  • Attainment of Associate Degrees in Arts and Sciences
  • Acquisition of certificates and career skills
  • Successful transition of students from Basic Skills and English as a Second Language to college-level proficiency
  • Improved access and persistence of MRSD targeted student populations

In addition, MRSD, collaborates with academic departments and commity-based organizations to offer other programs and services consistent with our primary mission.
