Justice Scholars – Pitt Enhanced College Prep Support

Abstract

Justice Scholars is a transformative program that provides a credit-bearing, college preparatory experience to students in a local underserved high school. Since 2016, this transdisciplinary program has partnered with various units to offer Pitt courses and additional supports to impact students at Westinghouse Academy in Homewood. Collaborators, both at Pitt and in the community, have expressed interest in a Justice Scholars replication that would bring this Pitt-sponsored college preparatory opportunity to other local schools. The proposal intent is to embark on a 2-year evaluation and replication study of Justice Scholars that will include a program launch at one additional school.
