Mission Statement:

The Posse Foundation has three goals:
1. To expand the pool from which top colleges and universities can recruit outstanding young leaders from diverse backgrounds.
2. To help these institutions build more interactive campus environments so that they can be more welcoming for people from all backgrounds.
3. To ensure that Posse Scholars persist in their academic studies and graduate, so they can take on leadership positions in the workforce.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

As the United States becomes an increasingly multicultural society, Posse believes that the leaders of this new century should reflect the country’s rich demographic mix. The key to a promising future for our nation rests on the ability of strong leaders from diverse backgrounds to develop consensus solutions to complex social problems.

Posse is helping to create a new kind of network of leaders who will sit at the tables where decisions are made and better represent the voices of all Americans.

The presence of a multicultural team of students from diverse backgrounds fosters a campus environment that is more welcoming to all. Posse Scholars are positively affecting their campus communities through dialogue and leadership. Upon graduation, many Posse Alumni enter the workforce, while others pursue graduate degrees at leading institutions. Collectively, they represent a growing and diverse leadership network.
