Community Scholars



Community Scholars Graduates 200720082009201020112012

In this program a selected small group of students mentor local high school sophomores and use their positive college experiences to model success. Student mentors hone their presentation and teamwork skills. The program culminates when the high school students are brought to campus to help motivate them to succeed in high school and pursue a higher education. This program satisfies the community service substitution of the Business Professional Certificate (for 1 workshop).

Enrollment in Community Scholars is limited to students who meet the following requirements:

  • Be in good standing with the University
  • Have a minimum 2.5 GPA
  • Letter of recommendation
