Mission / Vision / Action

The Woods Foundation is dedicated to improving access to college careers in the sciences for non-traditional and at risks student populations by documenting, disseminating and advocating innovative and replicable strategies with our partner institutions.

A new vision of learning without physical walls and socioeconomic boundaries driven by parents, teachers, mentors, administrators, policy makers and their constituents awaits our young people. The real world skills of research, assessment and innovation need to be put into action in how our students’ apply the scientific method to their education, careers and personal lives.

Our group functions on the premise that the world will be a better place if students are given the best learning-opportunities and educational tools to prepare them to assume their role in the world-wide community.
