Dr. Andre Branch and Students
SWAG (Students With Academic Goals) is a program at Bell Middle School in San Diego that works to support and increase academic achievement in young men of color.  SWAG was founded by SDSU College of Education faculty member, Dr. Andre Branch, in 2010 and is supported by the University.

This semester SWAG was featured in Insights, the newsletter of the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA).  Not only was the program featured, but IECA also granted SWAG $5,000.00 for this academic year.  This grant money will help to forward the mission of SWAG by providing important academic materials and resources.
