Inclusion, Access & Success
The Inclusion, Access, and Success Committee (formerly the Human Relations Committee) seeks to assist and improve the educational welfare of students and assist in the expansion of equal access to post-secondary educational opportunities for those who, for reasons of poverty or other experience, have been denied options available to others. The committee shall plan and recommend strategies for implementing a multicultural agenda for the Association and recommend advocacy for legislation affecting the Association’s goals of equity and access.
The Inclusion, Access, and Success Committee's two main initiatives are:
CAMP COLLEGE: This overnight program, hosted on a college campus each July, aims to introduce students from underserved backgrounds to the college admissions process. This includes students who come from low-income families and/or have parents who did not attend college. Specifically, this program is geared towards rising high school seniors who would like additional support finding the best college matches and successfully applying for college admission and financial aid.
Find dates and locations of this year's Camp College under the News & Events dropdown menu. Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org anytime for additional information about participating in Camp College.
COLLEGE KEY: A one-day workshop for sophomores and juniors in high school from underserved backgrounds. This includes students from low-income and first generation college-going families. Students spend the day on a college campus with admissions representatives and college counselors from throughout New Jersey and learn about how to research colleges, complete college applications, and apply for financial aid. Students are welcome – though not required - to attend with a parent, guardian, or school counselor. Students are responsible for their own transportation, but the event is free and lunch will be included for both parents and students.

Committee Chairs: Sarah Graham, Director of College Counseling, Princeton Day School and Andre Richburg.
