We are excited to announce a new initiative being introduced at the Delano Campus – the Cultural & Historical Awareness Program (CHAP). This is a program created to enhance students' awareness of certain important aspects of our society of which they may previously have had little or no exposure. We will be organizing a variety of field trips, guest speakers, panel discussions, and videos throughout the year – all open to the public.
