MATCH (Making Access to College Happen) is a program at the University of Washington-Bothell that connects college students to low income and first generation high school and middle school students who want to attend college. We do this through knowledge building, peer mentoring, and pre-academic college advising. This program develops college student leaders by providing training in educational inequalities and social issues that impact the student populations whom we work with. Our vision is to increase diversity in higher education institutions by providing equitable access to higher education.
