Providing a Supportive Environment for the Economically Disadvantaged (
Co-Presenter with Sandy Cole, Dr. Hunter Huckabay, and Susan Schweir)
This joint presentation addresses different areas and programs through which UTC supports students from socioeconomically challenged backgrounds. The presenters will provide information on K-12 students, college students, adults, veterans, foster children, and homeless individuals who are part of this population. They will share some of the challenges these individuals face, the impact on the wider community, and the programs in place to assist and support their success. They will also share opportunities on how the campus community can get involved with these programs.
