Built for students
We've built NAVCAP putting the needs of students first. We've surveyed feedback from our growing community of graduate and undergraduate Black and LatinX students and what they need from mentorship and career guidance.

Why use a culturally responsive approach?
Because research shows that historically under-represented groups have very different experiences than other groups in colleges and universities, how they are supported, cultivated, and empowered must look different as well. Our change model reflects this.
We center cultural responsiveness, humanizing, and healing while acknowledging the impact of anti-blackness as well as structural and historical systems of inequity. We welcome co-conspirators as we move from aspirations of diversity, equity, and inclusion towards action, opportunities, and thriving partnerships.
