C.H.A.M.P.S.
CHALLENGING ATHLETE’S MINDS FOR PERSONAL SUCCESS

ABOUT CHAMPS:
The purpose of this program is to enhance student-athlete engagement, to give them the tools and support needed to successfully advance in their education and sport, and to support interaction between athletes, coaches, faculty, staff, and support programs. Our mission is to enhance the quality of the student-athlete experience within the context of higher education.

The program supports student-athlete development and excellence in five areas: Academics, Athletics, Personal Development, Career Development, and Community Service. The goals of the program are: serving the high-risk students shown to be low in course completion rates, decreasing dropout rates, and increasing the percentage of student-athletes’ retention, completion, and transfer rates. Some strategies of the program include: mentors, SAAC (Student Athlete Advisory Council), grade checks/progress reports, study hall, tutoring assistance, an academic counselor, guest speakers and workshops with various campus departments, a student handbook and website for CHAMPS.

This program is an activity of the Student Equity Plan. We look forward to the impact this program will create on campus and appreciate your support. If you have any input or have any questions, please contact Leslie Trujillo at cordovld@lahc.edu or 310-233-4354.
