Dr. Camacho’s passion is to continue the work and legacy of her mentors: to create opportunities for those individuals from marginalized communities and make graduate education attainable to them through intensive research. She co-founded the Applied Mathematical Sciences Summer Institute (AMSSI), a summer research program dedicated to the recruitment of undergraduate women and underrepresented minorities. More than one hundred of her mentees have earned Ph.D.s from AMSSI and other summer research programs she co-directed or worked with. Her leadership and mentoring work has been recognized by the Hispanic Women's Corporation (2011) and the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (2012). Additionally, Camacho's educational programs and activities have been supported by federal grants from the National Security Agency, the National Science Foundation, and the U.S. Department of Education.
