Support RAMP, a TRIO Student Support Services project!
Who We Are
The Reading, Advising, & Mentoring Program (RAMP) is a U.S. Department of Education TRIO Student Support Services program funded to serve 250 eligible Cal Poly Pomona students per year.
As a federally funded project, RAMP’s mission is to increase the retention and graduation rates of low-income, first-generation college students, and students with disabilities at Cal Poly Pomona. RAMP fosters academic excellence, leadership development, and cultural awareness.
Funds will be used to engage RAMP participants in activities that strive to close the achievement gap by opportunities to network, cultivate community, and foster a sense of belonging while promoting academic success and life long learning.
Every Gift Makes a Difference

"The first-gen meeting had the most underrated impact on me in that it was the first time I felt like I belonged in college."
"The improvement of my reading went hand in hand with the improvement of my confidence. I felt that I was at an advantage compared to other engineers as I worked on improving skills engineers typically neglect, and this impacted my overall confidence."
