About the
Emily K Center


Quality educational experiences are essential to preparing students for the future, yet systemic barriers create pronounced disparities in educational opportunities and outcomes. The Emily Krzyzewski Center, a nonprofit organization in Durham, North Carolina, implements four distinct programs designed to build on the academic, career, and leadership potential of students who are traditionally underrepresented in higher education. Collectively, our programs serve students from elementary school through college and equip them with the skills necessary to successfully complete higher education, connect to promising careers, and become agents of change within their communities. We amplify our efforts through partnerships with our local school district, community-based organizations, and universities.

By the Numbers
  • 2,000+ students served annually
  • Students at more than 40 colleges and universities across the country
  • Nearly 100% of Scholars to College students enroll in college
  • Game Plan: College conducts more than 400 one-on-one advising sessions each year
