Puente Project

The Puente Project is an academic preparation program that will improve the college-completion rate of Texas' educationally underserved students. EPCC is one of three Texas institutions chosen to initiate the program.

The program provides:

  • A two-semester English composition class emphasizing Chicano, Latina, and Mexican American Literatures
  • A Puente Counselor
  • A Puente club in which Puente students are members
  • And mentoring by professional community members

Students remain with the same instructor, counselor and mentor for the full year. To be eligible you must place into EDUC 1300 and INRW 0311.
