THE HUMANITIES LADDER is a unique program that introduces college-level humanities
to low-income and under-represented high school students through weekly sessions
with Slippery Rock University professors.
This transformative experience empowers students to succeed by providing groundwork for
understanding the complexities of the world, while fostering empathy for others and a desire
to become active and effective citizens.
Through the Humanities Ladder, students envision new educational goals and develop
greater confidence in civic participation.
"The Humanities Ladder program has given me more insight on how to be a
successful and outgoing student."
-Isiah Aston, Aliquippa High School Student
