What if you could open the doors of success for first-generation business students?
The EDGE (Expanding Diverse Group Experiences) program addresses the specific needs and barriers of students from low socio-economic, first-generation backgrounds as they transition to WSU and pursue an undergraduate business degree.
Based in theory and driven by best practice, EDGE programming:
- Develops within students the academic skills and behaviors that enable college success;
- Increases students’ social capital;
- Improves students’ contextual skills and awareness of both higher education and business;
- Increases and improves students’ non-cognitive beliefs, skills, and behaviors, including: growth mindset, pluralistic orientation, social self-concept, academic self-concept, and social agency.
