The MAESTROs Probook Computer Loan Program will return Fall 2023. Updated information to follow.


We have document cameras to loan out to credential program students. As we have a limited number of document cameras to loan out, we will distribute them on a case-by-case basis based on need. The document cameras work with Mac, PC, and Chromebook with a USB or HDMI port.


MAESTROs Project 

Administered by the U.S. Department of Education, the Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) Program provides grants to assist HSIs to expand educational opportunities for low income and Hispanic students. CSUMB first became eligible for the HSI designation in Spring 1998, just a few years after the founding of the university.


The collaborative Making Accessible and Effective Systems for Teacher Readiness Outcomes (MAESTROs) project between CSUMB and Hartnell College has been selected to receive five years of funding under the HSI Title V. The MAESTROs project activities are designed to expand and enhance student support structures and improve retention and graduation rates of Hispanic and low-income education pathway students to fulfill the teacher workforce needs.

MAESTROs activities will focus on the following three main components:

  • Develop and Enhance Student Support Systems (Student Connections)
  • Facilitate Collaborative Articulations That Support Successful Transitions (Pathways)
  • Support Program Curriculum and Delivery Improvement (Faculty Connections)
