Funded by the James Graham Brown Foundation
The WKU Center for Academic Resources & Success (WKU CAReS) is an initiative to assist students that identify as underrepresented and/or who are first-generation, Pell-eligible, and have some need with their transition, persistence, and graduation from Western Kentucky University. Established through grant support from the James Graham Brown Foundation, students who take part in WKU CAReS activities will find a support network dedicated to ensuring their success. Students will have the opportunity for transformation related to personal development, academic engagement, campus involvement, and opportunities for experiences related to culture and diversity. The Intercultural Student Engagement Center encompasses both programs (ISEC Academy & WKU CAReS) to ensure a quality, diverse, and inclusive experience that will prepare all students to be successful on the Hill.
The James Graham Brown Foundation is located in Louisville, Ky., and is recognized as a leader in promoting the well-being of Kentuckians through support for education, workforce development, community and economic prosperity, and quality of life.
