At Student U we have a crazy dream.  We believe that all students in Durham, regardless of the color of their skin or how much money their parents have in their pocket, can succeed.  This is so crazy because years of data tell us we are wrong.  Today only 48% of low income students in Durham are reading on grade level.  Only 72% of low-income students in Durham are graduating from high school on time.  Our belief is so crazy because today only 11% of low-income students who enroll in a four year college graduate within 6 years.  Yet, we at Student U have this dream. We expect 100% of our students to beat these statistics and not only complete high school, and not only enroll in college, but to graduate from college. 

Your financial support allows Student U to make this dream come true. As we continue to climb the mountain to reach the ultimate peak of college graduation, know that 100% of your contribution goes directly to supporting our students on their journey. 

  • Curriculum development and program supplies
  • Training and mentoring for teachers
  • Experiential learning and special events which supplement our academic schedule
  • Salaries for teachers and staff
