"Precious" based on the novel “Push” by Sapphire is set in Harlem in 1987. It is the story of Claireece “Precious” Jones, a 16-year-old African-American girl born into a life no one would want. She’s pregnant for the second time by her absent father; at home, she must wait hand and foot on her mother, a poisonously angry woman who abuses her emotionally and physically. School is a place of chaos, and Precious has reached the ninth grade with good marks and an awful secret: she can neither read nor write.

The Office of Cultural Outreach & Involvement is charged to increase the number of students, faculty, and staff from under-represented domestic populations, to work with all campus stakeholders in creating a more welcoming and supportive environment for those populations, to develop key partnerships that will help SNHU reach our goals around diversity, and to support associated programming.
