IMAGINE • PREPARE • DO

UCAC advisers for 2014-15

FIRST IMAGINE. THEN DO.

Success in college can never start too early. From preschool and kindergarten all the way through high school, there are things we can do today that will help prepare our young minds for higher education—no matter what stage they may be at now.

The U's Office of Engagement connects community with the promises of higher education in important ways—through first helping young people IMAGINE and really believe they can go to college, then by mentoring and preparing them through the process, and finally by helping them DO—fostering real achievement though counseling, engagement, and the creation of a safe space to learn and discover.
