This is Posse at Pomona

Gaines credits part of his decision to come back to Pomona to not wanting to be the student who dropped out and broke up the Posse group – a cohort of 10 students from Chicago urban high schools, and he says, to the support of his Posse faculty mentor, Psychology Professor Eric Hurley. Dion Boyd ’16 agrees. “We come from a place that is extremely different from here, in every sense of the word. But, we are extremely close, we love our mentor Eric Hurley and we love each other,” says Boyd.
