About Us

Winston-Salem State University’s Center for the Study of Economic Mobility (CSEM) launched in September 2017 with a $3 million grant from the Thurgood Marshall College Fund’s Center for Advancing Opportunity (CAO), an initiative supported by The Charles Koch Foundation and Koch Industries.  The CAO focuses on researching barriers to opportunity in fragile communities. WSSU is the first announced center from CAO.
