Project C.A.R.E.

Project C.A.R.E. (Committed to African-American Retention in Education) is a combination of programs seeking to improve the academic performance and retention of Western Carolina University's African-American student population. The program introduces African-American freshman and transfer students to student leaders who serve as peer counselors helping them to adjust to college life socially, culturally, and academically.

The components of Project C.A.R.E. are:

  • A fall retreat for African-American first-time freshmen and transfer students
  • A college orientation course for entering freshmen: LEAD 155: Project C.A.R.E, which is incorporated into Western PEAKS
  • Peer-to-peer mentoring
  • Special programs for student athletes
  • Community building
  • Mid-term academic grade monitoring
