Scholarly Resources

One of Thrive Center's guiding strategies is to encourage scholarly leadership. Our work with first-generation, low-income, students of color is informed by Critical Race Theory, Funds of Knowledge, Community Cultural Wealth, Growth Mindset and the value of mentoring. Our evidence-based programs and services are always designed with student needs in mind.
