Our mission is to facilitate opportunities for students to acquire the social capital they need to be successful in their future endeavors.
We define social capital as a network of assets (resources, connections, processes, and skills) that enables and enhances one’s ability to effectively pursue his or her goals. We recognize that there is an unlevel playing field with regard to social capital acquisition for those who are attending college. We hope to close that gap. We believe we can increase the odds that underserved and underrepresented college students will more likely and often achieve their immediate and longer-term goals.
Our vision is that underserved and underrepresented students will acquire the social capital they need to be successful in their future endeavors. We feel their success is key to the creation of a more just and equitable society.
