GO Project


The Long Beach City College "Growth and Opportunities Project" is a Student Support Services Project funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The G.O. Project is designed to increase the number of students with disabilities who transfer to four year colleges and universities. The G.O. Project is a comprehensive program of academic support and personal development services for low-income, first-generation college, and disabled students to achieve retention and graduation rates that exceed that of the general student body. The G.O. Project serves as the campus home base for this group of students. The organizing principal of the project fosters and develops a supportive academic community and campus climate both within the project and with the college at large.
