Student 2 Student Outreach

Program Mission

To increase college participation and success for historically underrepresented and first-generation students, through partnerships with schools in our community. Working alongside students as they pursue and successfully complete post-secondary education, we provide targeted support and connections from the end of their senior year in high school through their first year at WSU.
