Pacific Oaks College celebrated its recent grand opening of the Student Success Center, which also marks the start of Hispanic Heritage Month.
The Student Success Center was funded by the $2.5 million Developing Hispanic-Serving Institution Title V grant awarded to Pacific Oaks in 2020. The center serves Pacific Oaks’ Latinx and underrepresented students by providing resources such as bilingual staff, tutoring, mentors and lending library laptops and textbooks.
