There are an excessive and disproportionate number of barriers to quality professional training and education: money, discrimination, socioeconomic status, geographic location, public policy, citizenship status, quality of educational materials, quality of teachers and access.
EMERGE commits to removing the barriers to the top professional training and education, giving critical and life altering access to our students, enabling them to pursue their goals, open their minds, learn the techniques of their discipline and realize their version of success.
