The Access Center seeks to make education accessible to all persons and groups by developing the talents of first generation (neither parent has earned a bachelor’s degree), limited income, or ethnically diverse youth and adults. The services provided are designed for those who would benefit from receiving information about opportunities in higher education and to develop their skills and motivation needed to attend college. Participants also receive services in the transition to a college environment in order to increase their rates of persistence and graduation in postsecondary education.
