- CSU is working with two area universities and the Dayton Regional STEM Center to help middle school and high school teachers train the next generation of STEM workers
- Central State will host an informational event for military personnel and their dependents about educational opportunities at CSU
This Fall, former foster care youth who are enrolled as students at Central State University will benefit from a mentoring program that will help them academically, socially and emotionally.
The Emerging Scholars Program is a result of Central State receiving a $60,000 grant from Ohio Reach, a coalition working to improve higher-education outcomes for former foster youth. CSU, an 1890 Land-Grant Institution, is one of four universities to receive a multi-year grant to create a mentoring program to help former foster youth succeed in college.
“We want to make sure we are feeding them holistically” from admission through graduation, she said.
Twenty-five students will start the program this Fall. William Murray, IV,
Director of Ohio Reach, praised the CSU staff for investing in a population that for a long time has struggled at the college level. Ohio Reach improves post-secondary outcomes for foster care youth and alumni through leadership, empowerment, advocacy, research and networking.
