The School of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) Dean’s Office has launched a new initiative for its majors and minors. HSS LEAP (leadership, experiential learning, academic achievement, professional development) is an inclusive community of diverse students and professors from a wide variety of backgrounds committed to working together to build meaningful relationships that will support students as they strive to achieve their goals. This multi-year academic enrichment program has four strategic goals to promote comprehensive student development: increasing academic achievement, encouraging experiential learning, providing professional development, and creating community. Participants will gain skills that will prepare them to be independent lifelong learners who will engage in solving complex problems and act as informed citizens who contribute to their communities. Accepted students will receive a $250 per semester scholarship as well as an opportunity to apply for funding for experiential learning opportunities (study abroad, summer research, internships, etc.).
Applications to join the program are now open and can be found here. Deadline to apply is March 1.
