Our philosophy is simple. We believe in equity, excellence, holistic development, and community outreach. We are grounded in the philosophy of “lifting and climbing” – as scholars of color we must lift others up as we climb towards success.
Our purpose is to promote the holistic development of scholars of color across the lifespan.
We define a “scholar” as someone who strives for excellence as a student or professional.
We also define “scholars of color” as students and professionals from racial and ethnic minority groups such as African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans and Native Americans.
We believe all scholars should grow in the eight dimensions of wellness:
While other educational organizations are only focused on your academics or career, we are concerned with you as a whole person.
Scholars of all backgrounds are welcome to attend and participate in our programs and services. We are an inclusive firm with a non-discrimination statement. However, given the historical lack of resources allocated to racial and ethnic minority communities in the United States, many of our programs and services are catered to serve individuals from underrepresented and marginalized communities.
Scholars should never stop growing! We cater to scholars of color from kindergarten to retirement and all life stages in between. We welcome K-12 Scholars, Collegiate Scholars and Continuing Studies Scholars.
