Instructor: 
Dr. Carol SubiƱo Sullivan & Christopher Burke
Each HP student will mentor one high school student as the student prepares for college. You will examine how race, poverty, and other socioeconomic dynamics have shaped the educational opportunities available in historically segregated and economically distressed urban communities and apply these insights to bring a more informed perspective to your mentoring work. You will also consider how education contributes to and is impacted by issues of equity and access for the Westside community.
