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:

  1. 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
  2. Provide diverse, and well-trained peer, graduate student and faculty mentors
  3. Connect motivated and capable student researchers with funded research and field-based opportunities
  4. Sustain a supportive, inclusive community for students interested in field-based and research opportunities at UCSC
