Community Engagement Camps

Community Engagement Camps

Southwestern College could use your help as we “engage locally” with the educationally underserved in our surrounding region. We have developed successful partnerships to help first generation, ethnic minority and low income students from the urban areas of Wichita, Des Moines and Oklahoma City. The college endeavors to help middle school and high school students plan for college and prepare to succeed in the world. Southwestern believes in the power of higher education and demonstrates it by assisting young people fulfill their dreams. We are also fortunate that educators and community leaders have come forward to work with us and provide plenty of opportunities to work with young people. Unfortunately as the number of opportunities increase, our grant partner has discontinued their support and the public school system is struggling with state budget cuts. Still, Southwestern is determined to continue its commitment to the middle and high school students we are mentoring. But to serve these students, additional financial support is needed. If you would like more information about this or other community engagement initiatives, please contact Dawn Pleas-Bailey (dpbailey@sckans.edu)
