Young, Gifted, and Black (YGB) serve as an intentional retention program with the Charles E. Brown African American Cultural Center and Black Faculty, Staff Caucus to provide a space for academic support, intentional retention efforts, cultural and social development. We understand some of you may need additional academic support to be retained here at Indiana State University. YGB will provide monthly opportunities to check- in with Black Faculty and Staff to prevent academic probation, dismissal, and navigating steps before graduation. It is vital to remind you that you are Gifted and will be successful.

Learning outcomes for YGB:

  • Students will develop academic success strategies in and out of the classroom.
  • Students will have an improved confidence in interacting and engaging with Black Faculty and Staff.
  • Student will be able to assess and improve their academic trajectory at Indiana State University.
