Multicultural Scholars Program
The College of Liberal Arts offers programs and services through its Multicultural Scholars Program (MSP) for the purpose of creating a diverse and inclusive educational community. We strive to create an environment for students from historically underserved populations, including Black/African American, Native American/American Indian, Hispanic/Latinx/Chicanx, Asian/Pacific Islander, LGBTQ+, First-Generation, Undocumented, and Low-Income, that create a sense of belonging and support by connecting students to resources designed for personal, academic and professional success.
As part of this program, students will receive free peer-to-peer mentoring within our Underrepresented Student Network, printing/computer lab access, free tutoring, and many professional development opportunities. Students will also be assigned to a dedicated Academic Advisor throughout their time at Cal Poly. MSP is an excellent way to make a positive start in your college education, and to start building your connections to your community from day one!
Hi everyone! My name is Alejandra Cebreros, and I am the Multicultural Academic Advisor for the College of Liberal Arts. Through my role, I also coordinate the Multicultural Scholars Program. I’m very excited about this program because students will be provided with many opportunities to build a community and attain resources that will bring them closer to achieving their personal, academic and professional goals. As a first-generation college graduate, I am happy to work with you to access these resources because I believe they are essential in promoting student success. It is my hope that students will benefit from having a strong support network of individuals who will provide them with the guidance, support and resources they need to achieve their goals. We hope you can join us!
