The Center to Advance Mentored, Inquiry-Based Opportunities (CAMINO) is an inclusive community that aims to propel excellence by diverse undergraduates in ecology and conservation.
Our goals are to:
- Support UCSC students from the first day of class to graduation and beyond by linking them with resources that prepare them for careers or graduate school in ecology and conservation
- Provide diverse, and well-trained peer, graduate student and faculty mentors
- Connect motivated and capable student researchers with funded research and field-based opportunities
- Sustain a supportive, inclusive community for students interested in field-based and research opportunities at UCSC
