Creator Hiatt, June C.
Subject Guadulupe School - Salt Lake City - Utah; Higher education
Description Guadalupe to the U Day is designed to increase awareness of higher education and attainment for minority youth currently enrolled at Guadalupe Schools in Salt Lake City, UT. This project is a one-day field trip to the' University of Utah organized by students working with The Lowell Bennion Community Service; Center and the Associated Students at the University of Utah. The field trip brings to through 4th graders to the university where students will attend classes relating to current coursework, students will also spend some time with different departments across campus. Through systematic issues with education systems and social issues regarding race and symbolic representation of minority groups on campus, minority students are less likely to attend a four-year institution and complete successfully. Through the implementation of this program we hope to break down walls between the dreams and the realities of the students at Guadalupe Schools, reinforcing that they are able to attend college and be successful.
