Association of Latinos and Allies for Student Success (ALASS) strives to celebrate and promote Latino academic success on our Campus and throughout our communities. Our mission is to bring together faculty, staff, students, and administrators to raise awareness of and advocate for the needs of our Latino student population. ALASS engages the Latino Community by providing access to higher education through activities and events that have a positive impact on student access, persistence, and academic success. Our programs seek to create an atmosphere where community members are embraced and feel welcomed. As a volunteer organization, we are committed to fulfilling the mission of Palomar College by opening new doors to opportunity and fully engaging our community in a supportive learning environment rich in diversity.
