Giving: Dr. David R. Black Enrichment Fund
The purpose of the David R. Black Academic Enrichment Fund of Eastern University is to enable academically promising students with special needs attend college or reach their potential in college when they lack the support necessary for success. Motivated students with academic challenges and other complex learning disorders, or generally poor academic preparation have a real chance of success with intensive and targeted services. Academic accommodations, supplemental instruction and tutoring, counseling, help with social skills and campus living, and intensive mentoring and advising tailored to the student can make the difference.
Providing services and scholarships beyond the minimum is costly, but key to creating real opportunity for these talented individuals.
