Student Enrichment Services was born out of student activism.
In 2013, in partnership with President Morton Schapiro and Vice President of Student Affairs, Patricia Telles-Irvin, the Co-Presidents of Quest+ (formerly Quest Scholars Network), worked together to garner support for an office dedicated to the enrichment and support of first-generation and/or lower-income students at Northwestern. In November 2014, the Founding Director, Kourtney Cockrell, was hired and four years later, SES has become a welcoming home to the growing community of FGLI students across campus.
