High School Students Solve Real-World University Challenges
Students of the Veritas School of Social Sciences came together at Georgia State University on Wednesday (June 28, 2023) to learn more by tackling challenges that corporate and institutional leaders face — including at the university itself.
The Veritas Corporate Immersion Day brought more than 35 students ages 14 through 17 to Georgia State, where they heard from university leaders and were tasked with forming potential solutions to issues ranging from cybersecurity training, student engagement and operational matters to student involvement, enrollment and course success.
The Veritas School provides access to academic and professional skills training that places students on pathways to excellence at colleges and universities, and toward high-earning careers. The aim is to close academic opportunity and economic inequality gaps for Black and brown students through programs like Veritas Corporate Immersion, a debate institute, a global travel program and programs in career readiness along with K-12 teacher training.
