Service Scholars Curriculum

The Service Scholar Program is truly indicative of its name we encourage students to critically engage in service through academic study and experiential learning, with the intention that our students will be scholars of service in both practice and understanding. Therefore, this program is far more than a financial means and requires great commitment and dedication.

Each Service Scholar participates in a four-year curriculum which includes curricular (coursework) and co-curricular (outside-of-classroom) learning experiences.
