Project Culture Exchange Programme is untraditional peer language learning and international students’ integration programme led by three universities’ student councils. The main goal is to raise awareness and understanding within the student body about different cultures and student backgrounds while preventing discrimination and to help international students to learn Latvian language in fun, untraditional way.
The Academic Advancement Program (AAP) implemented at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) has been evolving for over 40 years. The program improves the academic achievement of historically underrepresented groups which originally targeted particularly African Americans and Latinos but now extends to students from disadvantaged backgrounds of all races. APP is holistic and targets students and staff and covers the curriculum and policy, community engagement, parents, and professional development. In particular it works with 21 community colleges in areas with large underrepresented student groups to improve students preparedness for admission to the university.
