STRIDE is a network that brings together grant-based and institutional pipeline programs with academic support, student life, and cultural programs and centers. We seek to learn from each other and work together to broaden and deepen our efforts to serve our diverse body of students at UIC.

“As we have increased enrollment what does it mean for our ability to serve our students? How do we move from minority enrolling to minority serving? What are the specific challenges you would like to discuss regarding our mission of serving students with rapid growth and enrollment?”
