GRIT Initiative

The GRIT Initiative facilitates student achievement. By fostering students' perseverance, sense of purpose, connection and engagement, the GRIT Initiative enhances a student's capacity to flourish academically and personally. The initiative focuses students on their non-cognitive skills like help-seeking, their metacognitive skills like the ability to think about their own thinking, and their sense of place and agency. The initiative recognizes and develops students' strengths and competencies rather than their deficits.
