Women Investing in Secure Education (WISE)

Goodwin College

Women Investing in Securing an Education (WISE) is an effective college-retention program at Goodwin College that provides financial aid, proactive academic advising, and tailored student services—including career exploration and personal counseling—for young women at risk of dropping out of college without strong supports. Each year the program enrolls about two dozen economically and/or educationally disadvantaged 18- to 20-year-old women who commit to full-time study.
