The Western Michigan University College Assistance Migrant Program is a program federally funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Migrant Education. The program’s goal is to provide supportive services to migrant and seasonal farmworkers or their dependents, to assist them in the successful completion of their first year of college and persistence toward degree attainment. The program provides services and resources in the areas of academic guidance, career planning and development, intellectual and cultural enrichment, as well as financial assistance based on individual need. Program participants also receive follow-up services after successful completion of their first year. CAMP at WMU is housed in the Multicultural Affairs for Students department.
