Feedback form is now closed.
UNCG CHANCE (Campamiento Hispano Abriendo Nuestro Camino a la Educacion) is a university-sponsored program that provides Latinx and Hispanic high schoolers from the United States and abroad with early access to college entrance resources. The program was originally funded through the Frontier Set Program, part of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The UNC Greensboro University Libraries began participating in CHANCE in summer 2017 and have continued to support various initiatives involved in this program. CHANCE was identified as an opportunity to fulfill part of the Libraries’ core mission, which is to “[e]ngage with community partners to provide programs and resources that enhance the life of the University and community...” Collaborating with multiple library departments (Special Collections & University Archives; the Digital Media Commons; Research, Outreach, and Instruction), librarians guide students through a series of activities, including a scavenger hunt, video making, primary source analysis, and basic source evaluation. These activities are meant to enhance the students’ academic skills and encourage them to pursue success in college.

This highly interactive session will speak to the many different components of the UNCG CHANCE program through presentation, group discussion, Q&A, and think-pair-share activities.
