Being poor should not be a barrier to education.
Dr. DeWayne Frazier grew up in rural Appalachia. He was the first in his family to graduate from high school, much less go to college. Even before becoming a higher education administrator, he understood the importance of education. And he knows first-hand the extra hurdles poverty can create during a student’s academic journey.
In this podcast episode, Dr. Frazier talks about his passion for making education accessible for any student who wants it. As the University Provost at Iowa Wesleyan University, Dr. Frazier outlines what the school is doing to help all students reach their goals of a college degree.
