What's a Saluki?
Point of Pride
SIU has earned national recognition from Strive for College for excellence in service to traditionally underserved students. The university, home of the First Saluki Center serving first-generation students, was named a Strive College Partner for 2020, the inaugural year of the honors program. Institutions of higher learning must meet or exceed specific benchmarks for inclusion, diversity, affordability, completion and outcomes to receive the accolade.
