The goal of the Basic Skills Initiative is to ensure that basic skills development is a major focus and an adequately funded activity of Miramar College. Many Community College students need pre-collegiate Math and/or English skill development; hence, Miramar College is participating in a project with all of the California Community Colleges that will enable sharing of ideas, projects and techniques to help all students achieve their academic goals.
The mission of the Basic Skills Program is to ensure that students with basic skills needs have access to programs, services and classes that will help them achieve their academic and career goals.
