In need of resources to help students process the recent events in Charlottesville, VA or in your local communities? Here are some valuable links to educate and promote tolerance.
Since 1975, the Office of the Board of Governors along with the state university admissions directors have offered free workshops around the state to meet with middle and high school guidance counselors. At these workshops, directors explain admissions philosophies, policies, and procedures so that counselors can better serve the needs of their university-bound students. Special thanks are given to ACT, College Board, and the Department of Education for their ongoing support of the tour.
