Inclusion and Retention Programs & Coaching
The Inclusion and Retention Office includes Academic Success Coaching, Peer Study Groups & Advocacy, Summer & Fall Bridge Programs, support for Student Organizations, Single Mothers' Assistance, African American Male Success Team, along with Equity Grants - all couched under the umbrella of Culturally Responsive Practices.
- Inclusion is involvement and empowerment where the inherent worth and dignity of all people are recognized. We strive to promote and sustain a sense of belonging. Respect for the talents, beliefs, backgrounds, and ways of living are primary values and practices of our institution.
- Regardless of a student’s socioeconomic status, creed, ability, marital status, race, ethnicity, gender identity, religion, political affiliation or sexual orientation, at some point in a student’s academic career they might need assistance outside of the normal realm of what is perceived to be in student services.
