ISEC Academy


Intercultural Student Engagement Center (ISEC) Academy is a Western Kentucky University initiative/program to assist first-year students that identify as students of color (Black, Hispanic/Latino, Asian, Native American, Multiracial) and/or who are first generation, Pell eligible, and have some need with their transition, persistence, and graduation from Western Kentucky University.  This program is coordinated by the Intercultural Student Engagement Center.  We believe that students of color at Western Kentucky University are scholars who will achieve positive change in themselves, the WKU Community, and the world!

            The primary components of the ISEC-Academy include peer mentoring and a living learning community for our incoming first-year students. Through our program students will have the opportunities for transformation related to personal development, academic engagement, culture and diversity, a support network and involvement. Our peer mentors (Navigators) are:

  • Diverse in terms of majors, social identities, and experiences.
  • Equipped to support new students in transitions, campus involvement, development of goals, and the Western Kentucky University experience.

Our living learning community located in Douglas Keen Hall, builds a sense of belonging to Western Kentucky University, forms a support network and begins creating the student’s college experience. In addition, students will enroll in two courses together: University experience and English 100.
