Scholar's Mentorship Program

Academics

The SMP first year seminar is:

  • BLK175 "Key Issues in the Education of Underrepresented College Students"

In this course, you will develop a historical and personal understanding of what it means to be an "underrepresented student" in the world of higher education. We know that you are talented, prepared and motivated. We want to build upon the skills you bring to college. Therefore, you will gain opportunities to polish you public speaking skills, use library electronic data bases, PowerPoint, other innovative computer programs, and conduct research on career options.

Other Courses…
There are three additional courses you can choose to enroll into over your four years. They are:

  • BLK205 Writing for Scholars (to enhance writing skills)
  • BLK345 Black and Latino Leadership (to study models of leadership in communities of color and to gain more leadership strategies for the campus and the community)
  • BLK393 Research for Scholars (to enhance skills in gathering and synthesizing research data--for upper division students)
