Mission, Vision & Goals



To provide personal, professional, and academic enrichment for its scholars, staff, and community at large. UNM CAMP will provide scholars with the tools to help them successfully complete their first year at the university by means of academic, social and financial support. We will guide CAMP scholars to develop practical skills necessary to attain an undergraduate degree and beyond. In collaboration with university departments, UNM CAMP will ensure participants have every opportunity to transition into programs that will continue to support them after their first year.


The College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) will foster the dream of attaining a post-secondary education for students from a rural farm working background.
