Its goal is prepare these individuals to be the future leaders of our multicultural society. The Posse Foundation supports students from diverse backgrounds by:
Expanding the pool from which top college and universities can recruit outstanding young leaders from diverse backgrounds
Helping these institutions build more interactive campus environments so that they can be more welcoming for people from all backgrounds
Ensuring that Posse Scholars persist in their academic studies and graduate so they can take on leadership positions in the workforce (The Posse Foundation, Inc., 2015).
