Pathways to Success

“Thanks for giving me a great jump start to college! It was great, I really enjoyed it and I appreciate everyone who took the time out to make it happen. Thanks again!”

The Pathways to Success program serves as an important support system for incoming first-year students of color.  The program is entirely funded and staffed by the Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion.  The free program is designed to prepare students of color academically and socially for their college experience at the University.  While there is no cost to be part of the program, students must apply before they arrive to campus.

Program Goals

The Pathways to Success program will help participants:

  • Transition smoothly into Streak Week by having 100% of all participants checked-in before the Streak Week Welcome dinner.
  • Transition smoothly into campus life by scheduling follow up 1:1 times with CSDI staff.
  • Identify key campus resources, such as faculty, staff, tutoring, and other services.

  • Recognize themselves as cultural student scholars.
  • Formulate three realistic goals for the fall semester.
