About: Student U is a college-access organization that believes all students in Durham have the ability to succeed. In order to make this dream a reality, Student U creates a pipeline of services to support students from the fifth grade through college graduation. By providing direct services during out-of-school time in the summer and after school, and advocating for students and families within schools, Student U ensures that its students develop the academic skills and personal wellbeing needed to beat the statistics and succeed in college.
2016-17 DGIN funding partially covered the salaries for two middle school teachers and provided funds for literacy supplies and books for Student U’s Summer Academy.
