Students in A Global Economy (SAGE)

Students in A Global Economy (SAGE) is a first-year learning community experience for Latina/o students that support the transition from high school to college.

The goal of the program is to successfully transition new students to college via participation in an intensive summer experience, and a full-time, first-year learning community. During the SAGE experience, students will capitalize on exciting workshops and professional opportunities that have a global economy focus.
