BUILD EXITO is an undergraduate research training program that supports students on their pathway to become scientific researchers. The BUILD EXITO Model aims to identify students early in their college career and engage them in finding solutions to today's major health problems.
We have started to collect stories about our members, from Scholars and Alumni to staff and faculty. To start things off, meet Cohort 2 Alumni Sara Herrejon Chavez. She shares her journey to EXITO, advice for current scholars, and more.
"Science is about to get a lot more fabulous, I'll tell you that!"
EXITO Scholars and Alumni are passionate and committed to making the world a more just and equitable place. They take a variety of pathways as they pursue their goals, learn more about their incredible research and accomplishments!
The BUILD EXITO Directors Fund helps to advance the goals of BUILD EXITO by enhancing the education, training, and student support activities of the EXITO project.
Our Research Learning Communities (RLCs) provide hands-on research experiences for students on established and innovative research projects. Students spend 18 months working in their RLCs with a research mentor to guide them.

Our model provides a highly scaffolded approach to training undergraduates interested in research careers through mentoring, integrated curriculum, a supportive environment, and hands-on research.
EXITO provides students with the scientific skills and understanding they need to pursue careers in a variety of biomedical fields including psychology, chemistry, biology, social work, and many more. We work to create an environment where students can experience a sense of belonging and develop their identity as scientists as they pursue research that will help make the world a more just and equitable place.
