GANAS Leadership Mentors


What is GANAS?

The GateWay Academic Nexus Advancing Students (GANAS) program aims to create a network of Latinx- and/or Hispanic-identifying student leaders who contribute to building experiences that strengthen social and cultural inclusion at GateWay and beyond. Ganas, a Spanish word of multiple meanings, is often recognized as a way to describe “winning”, or expressing strong effort and desire; not unlike how GateWay often describes students who overcome many barriers to achieve their academic goals.
