Service Continuity Update (Wednesday, March 25, 2020)
By now, you have received multiple communications from President Montgomery and our Provost, Dr. Jennifer Bott, regarding the university’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak. WMU remains open and the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) is here to provide supportive services to migrant and seasonal farmworkers or their dependents through academic tracking, advising, tutoring, and mentoring. The CAMP office is available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

To access these support services, you may call our office at (269) 387-4407 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have questions about eligibility or where you are at in the process, please contact Mr. Mejia at (269) 568-8637 or by email.
Phone calls and emails will be attended to in the order received.
Your success is our top priority and we will do our best to serve your needs. Thank you for your patience and be well!
Welcome from the director
On behalf of Western Michigan University College Assistance Migrant Program (WMU CAMP), I’d like to welcome you to the University and our program! We are excited to have you as a prospective student and know you will find a great place to thrive here. Our goal is to support you and your family as you transition into college and throughout your first year.
I know first-hand of the challenges you might encounter because I was once a migrant and first-generation college student who took the opportunity of attending college as part of CAMP. I did not go to and through college alone. I had a community of family, friends, teachers, mentors, and programs guiding me along the way. As such, we here at WMU CAMP are committed to your academic success.
Our CAMP team is here to advocate, support, and empower you through your journey. Please take advantage of our services! We are happy to chat with you or answer any questions to assist in your decision-making process. Also, be sure to browse our website and join our closed Facebook group once admitted to keep up with upcoming deadlines and information. I hope to have the honor of working with you in the near future!
Liliana Salas, MSW
