The aim of Challenge Accepted is to build a bridge between the black graduate community at Stanford and black youth in the local Bay Area. We recognize that over 60 years since the Brown v. Board of Education ruling, there still exists a great disparity between the educational outcomes of marginalized communities of color and their non-minority peers. The lack of quality education has had a debilitating effect on the communities of color, and their ability to achieve social, economic and political mobility. We hope that by establishing a connection with these communities, we can attack this educational divide at its core in the Bay Area. This past February we brought students from all around the Bay Area to Stanford’s campus for five consecutive Saturdays. The students participated in activities in Engineering, Biosciences, Law, Business, and Humanities. Our inaugural year went well and we hope to expand the program in 2017.
