Although technically these programs come out of Equity and Diversity as a whole, several of the staff members that run these programs are located in our center.
First Year Diversity Scholars
The First Year Diversity Scholars Program supports students through a personalized campus orientation, regular interactions with faculty and staff of color, academic advising, multiple mentoring relationships, and off-campus community engagement opportunities. Most notably, the program is implemented as a cohort model that includes traditional admitted students, sponsored students, and scholarship students.
Transfer Diversity Scholars
Our Transfer Diversity Scholars Program’s goal is to help with successfully transferring to and navigating the U of U. We provide services, resources, and community to help accomplish your goals and further your education.
