Our Programs

Although technically these programs come out of Student 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.
