Dr. Carjie Scott, the Education Equalizer, ™ defied the odds as a first-generation college student who rose to the top. When faced with opposition as a woman of color in higher education, she spoke truth to power and held leaders accountable to their institution’s governing policies that silenced the powerless and enabled the powerful. Dr. Scott advocates for first-generation college students, particularly Black students. She believes these students will enroll, excel, and graduate when celebrated and nurtured. Consequently, they will become gainfully employed when they are a part of an academic environment that celebrates their innovative ingeniousness as well as their diversity. Her vision is to create an inclusive and diverse higher education work environment that reflects the student body, instead of an agency that repels or rebukes them. Education will always be one of the vehicles that accelerates greatness. However, education should never be the entity that contributes to stagnation for anyone. Therefore, Dr. Carjie Scott, the Education Equalizer ™ relentlessly works to ensure that education is not only accessible but equitable.

  1. Dr. Scott’s book is a must read for first-generation college students to college administrators/leaders. Dr. Scott candidly shares powerful truths grounded in self-acceptance, resiliency and advocacy. Additionally, she shares the importance of owning your story, honoring/celebrating diversity and failing forward. This book is an invaluable resource for all higher education stakeholders.

  2. I finished reading, You are Accepted, in one day because it was such a good read. I was impressed with how Dr. Scott told her story with such bravery and vulnerability that made her instantly someone you wanted to cheer for but also someone you wanted on your team because she is tenacious, inspiring, and refreshingly honest. I attended an HBCU (TSU) for my bachelor’s, then attended two predominately white institutions for my MPH and MD. It was intriguing to read Dr. Scott’s experiences and see the similarities in what I have encountered. I highly recommend this book to educators at all levels, government officials, parents, students, and anyone wanting to be informed about the opportunities and struggles in higher education. It will also hopefully start more conversations about institutional racism that impacts higher education, society, and individuals. Dr. Scott did a beautiful job discussing difficult but important topics that cannot be addressed if they continue to be ignored.

  3. This book is more than the college acceptance process. It’s about overcoming life’s challenges and pushing yourself to achieve more than you thought was possible. To do what’s right and propel yourself to the next level. The book inspires you to use your voice and champion yourself as well as your community.

    Dr. Scott used her life’s experiences and her educational paths to vividly convey what it like to be Black, highly-educated/highly-qualified, and female in spaces that celebrate our innate greatness or spaces that attempt to crush or contaminate it!

    Her ability to eloquently articulate the pinnacles and pitfalls of educational success will enlighten parents, first generation college hopefuls, and education professionals in private and public sectors.

    Dr. Scott doesn’t just provide a definition of acceptance… her literary work grants each reader the opportunity to be accepted because she understands the importance of not just remembering where we’ve come from… but accepting it and using it as the fuel to cause a combustion of unstoppable greatness!
