Strategic Diversity Initiatives

Strategic Diversity Initiatives manages a variety of signature programs - Achieve Atlanta Scholars, Coca-Cola Scholars, REACH Georgia and Thrive-that are in place at KSU to provide resources and services to assist students in their transition into college throughout the way to degree completion.

As part of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion's mission of fostering an inclusive and holistic learning environment, the targeted student populations served by these programs are first-generation students, under-served groups and students from rural/urban locations.

The unit's goals for program participants are to improve retention, enhance the opportunities for academic success and promote student engagement by providing academic support services, co-curricular programs, and enrichment workshops throughout their college experience and beyond.
