Family Empowerment Center on South Campus

We want you and your family to succeed.

The Family Empowerment Center (FEC) on South Campus helps you get into and complete college—even if economic or other barriers have been holding you back.

We partner with community organizations to connect you with helpful resources.

Our Goals

To support our community, we work with our community partners to:

  • Reduce and eliminate barriers to attending and completing college
  • Promote economic stability through education
