Moving Beyond Access: Exploring a Continuum of Collaboration and Care to Promote College Success of Underrepresented Students

1,047

Published on

This highly interactive workshop will focus on the collaboration between a community-based organization and higher education institutions. It will concentrate on how the College Success Foundation – D.C. is bridging the pipeline from their HERO (Higher Education Readiness Opportunity) program for young men into the Achievers Scholarship Program, and how it strategically builds relationships to strengthen programs and the success of underrepresented students in college. Workshop participants will learn best practices for fostering and sustaining effective collaborations to better support underrepresented minority and first generation students, and will walk away with tangible information to apply to their organizations. The workshop will also explore the importance of establishing relations with all involved. Participants will share valuable tips around goal setting, effective communication, and developing creative, non-traditional strategic efforts to reach first generation underrepresented students.
