The Student Equity & Achievement Program serves as a hub for matricula-tion, achievement, and services that uplift disproportionately impacted students.
We ensure the high-school-to-college transition is smooth for incoming first-year students and provide academic and social support services for all students who are likely to experience inequity. We pride ourselves in addressing barriers such as food, housing, and poverty experienced by students who identify as LGBTQIA+, Black or African American, Veteran, Dis-abled, Homeless, Foster Youth, Formerly Incarcerated, and Student Athletes.
If any student is facing a barrier to their academic success such as lack of access to a computer, internet, housing, food, hygiene items, textbooks and/or school supplies, we want to help.
The Student Equity and Achievement Program is primarily operating remote-ly, accessible by phone, email, and Zoom with monthly drive-through distributions to provide critical support to students. For more information please contact us at https://bit.ly/equityativc.
