The mission of the Enlace Program is to help Chicano/Latino students successfully complete the academic core (English, Math, and Science) and to guide Chicano/Latino students effectively through transfer and occupational courses in a timely manner.
Enlace, which began in 1983, is an academic program supported by counseling, tutoring, community mentoring, and student organizations. Enlace serves underrepresented Chicano/Latino students of San Jose and nearby communities.
To participate in the program, students must make an appointment with the Enlace Counselor to determine if they are eligible based on an academic assessment (ie. placement scores).
Enlace has received the prestigious 2007 Excelencia in Education Award. The goal of the Washington D.C. based Excelencia in Education is to accelerate higher education success for Latino students. The purpose of the annual national competition is to identify and promote effective educational practices for Latinos. Enlace was selected as the model community college program.
