Reach for Success


It's never too early to start thinking about college!

The Center for Multicultural Academic Excellence’s (CMAE) Reach for Success is the UO's primary visitation program for traditionally underrepresented 7th and 8th grade students. This interactive campus visit for aspiring Ducks from across the state is designed to give students a tangible college experience while fostering campus relationships.

The program invites students from all underrepresented groups to experience campus resources, a student panel, keynote speaker, and workshops.

Reach for Success is also an opportunity for students to interact with faculty, staff, students and other professionals who may identify as they do. Activities are designed to allow the students to see themselves in the college environment and to engage in conversations about higher education and future career paths.

We strongly encourage you to invite students to attend that represent the full spectrum of diversity at your school.

Enrollment is capped at 25 students per school, until capacity is reached.

Please note that Reach for Success is on hiatus for 2023. The program will resume in 2024. For more information:
