The Kearns Center at the UR strives to expand the educational pipeline through the doctoral degree for low-income, first-generation college, and underrepresented minority students. The center focuses on the creation of replicable and scalable educational models that will increase the number of low-income and historically underrepresented individuals pursuing undergraduate, graduate, and professional education. The center provides educational guidance, scholarships, and support services to students who 1) Come from low-income families, 2) Will be, or already are, the first person in their family to earn a college degree 3) Come from racial groups identified by the federal government as underrepresented in higher education: African American, Native American, or Hispanic and 4) We also help develop and guide the University’s diversity and inclusion efforts.
