What is the Orbit initiative?

  • The Orbit program seeks to impact students through comprehensive college experiences and building support networks that enhance intellectual Orbit Logoand social engagement, ultimately increasing matriculation into personalized education pathways. 

    We aim to do this by focusing on 3 main pillars: 

    • Campus Connections   
    • Building Success Skills
    • Alumni Support

    Building out programming in these 3 pillars will strengthen the understanding of the college application and enrollment process while building the self-advocacy and success skills necessary for students to navigate to and through college.
