Summer Venture in Business program introduces high school students to KU

Introduced by 2016-17 Student Body President Stephonn Alcorn and Vice President Gabby Naylor, the program aims to familiarize underrepresented students and potential first-generation college students with business topics and equip them with the tools to succeed in college.
