College Readiness Resources: A Road Map for Success
As part of its diversity work, the Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs oversees programming that helps students and families prepare for their college readiness journey. This work is created in collaboration with several organizations and individuals within and across IU campuses.
Community and School Partnerships
Community and School Partnerships (CSP) works directly with students, especially those from underrepresented populations, helping them take advantage of all the opportunities that an IU education has to offer. A central component of this work involves connecting pre-college students and their families to programs and experiences that assist in making the transition to IU as smooth as possible.
