Retaining, developing, and graduating
our future leaders
Every semester, a new class of future leaders prepare for undergraduate studies, gaining knowledge they will use to lead in communities and corporations. But when minority students have a 6-year graduation rate of 43%*, there is need for support to ensure they can navigate the challenges of college. Our Foundation supports the retention, development, and graduation of leaders through mentorship and scholarship programs.
