Welcome to the ONDAS Student Center

In 2014, UCSB was recognized as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) by the U.S. Department of Education, making the campus eligible for new federal funding to develop new capacities and programs. The ONDAS Student Center (OSC) is funded by a Department of Education Title V HSI grant that supports these purposes. The grant recognizes UCSB’s strong and shared commitment to academic excellence and diversity, and provides new programming and services that will benefit all students on campus. To strengthen the academic success and retention of undergraduates, ONDAS delivers two main areas of activity: supporting first-year experiences (freshmen and transfer) and faculty professional development.
