Brandeis University community members celebrated the 25th anniversary of Student Support Services (SSSP) at the annual “I am a Movement” event on March 31 in  Levin Ballroom.
SSSP is part of a network of outreach and student services programs funded by the U.S. Department of Education to promote access to higher education among first-generation and low-income students.
Nationally recognized singer/songwriter Kevin So took the stage and sang about his immigrant experience, while Interim President Lisa M. Lynch, Daniel Acheampong ’11 and Cesar Pineda ’16 each offered prepared remarks and joined in the celebration.
"Brandeis is distinguished among highly selective universities in having a student support services program for 25 years,” said SSSP director Jennifer Morazes. “The graduation rate for SSSP scholars — 97 percent and 100 percent during 2008 and 2009, respectively — exceeds the university average.
“Whether our students are activists, economists, biologists or artists; whether they’ve earned Segal, Sorensen or Fulbright Fellowships — they expand knowledge and innovate through their contributions. They are truly a movement."
