The Southern Arkansas University AmeriCorps VISTA project will meet poverty-related needs and create pathways out of poverty as we increase the rate of college degree completion among low income students. SAU VISTA members will research national trends and programming, contextualize local concerns and issues related to degree completion barriers, advise he university of specific, targeted programming opportunities to meet student needs, enlist university and community volunteer support for initiatives, and other capacity-building activities. The Muleriders Kids College VISTA will help with identifying low-income students that are in need of financial assistance to attend the summer enrichment camp. They will also assist in securing funding for the camp to help us keep our tuition low and affordable. (The Mulerider is our Southern Arkansas University mascot!)
