Winning design in CMASS Stole Design CompetitionCongratulations, Elle Whitehead!
The winner of this year’s CMASS Stole Design Competition is Elle Whitehead, a senior in BDIC  with a concentration in Holistic Wellness. Her winning design included the four cultural centers (JWECC, LACC, MXCC, and YKCC)  because the stole is a “nod to how special these centers are to students.”The newly designed stole will be gifted to graduating CMASS-affiliated students on April 21, 2023.
We wish to thank other students who participated in this competition.  CMASS is grateful for sharing your artistic creations with us.

Austin-based singer-songwriter Gina Chavez blends the sounds of the Americas with tension and grace. Only the second Austinite and the third Latina born in the continental U.S. to receive a Latin Grammy nomination in the history of the awards, this queer, bilingual, genre-bending musician is a force to be reckoned with.

A 12-time Austin Music Award winner — her honors include Female Vocalist of the Year in 2019, and Austin Musician of the Year in 2015 — Chavez explores the true meaning of “Americana" as she and her band take audiences on a high-energy journey through Latin America and beyond.

Graduate School Program

Gradute Prep ProgramEach One, Reach One

The Graduate School Prep Program at CMASS is committed to preparing underrepresented undergraduate students for the graduate school education of their dreams. Graduate school can be a great experience and a way to advance your career and knowledge. Yet, grad school also can be intimidating for some of us.

CMASS staff is here to support you in your planning for graduate school through our workshops, mentorship initiatives, and resources. Regardless of when or where you decide to go for graduate school, the process of graduate school application requires the support of others. Check out more from our blog:
