ILCC Northwestern U Student Enrichment Services VISTA
Individuals with bachelor’s degrees earn substantially higher incomes than individuals with high school diplomas or GEDs. As such, higher education is one of the few factors that can significantly improve life outcomes for individuals in the United States, especially around social and economic mobility and poverty alleviation. The VISTAS work with SES directly influences the experience of low-income students at Northwestern University, by helping to manage critical resources for students, while assisting with building capacity across campus with faculty, staff, and administrators. Through Student Enrichment Services, the ILCC VISTA will support and develop programs and initiatives to serve low-income and/or first generation Northwestern University students to enhance their academic success, personal development and professional growth. The VISTA’s support to the SES office builds the staff’s capacity to actively engage and support a greater percentage of students across Northwestern’s campus.
