Download Project PDF

Examine how VCU can support students who are having trouble, especially in the freshman year, due to economic challenges their families are facing (parent's loss of jobs, parent's loss of home, students tuition debt, etc). Explore ways to address these issues in the classroom or in individual or group settings.
