Community Scholars


Community Scholars Graduates 20072008200920102011201220132014

This program has been a part of the College of Business for over 13 years. In CS, selected applicants 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
  • Complete Application
  • Pass an interview
