HONORS COLLEGE SEEKS FACULTY MENTORS: The Honors College seeks to identify faculty and administrators at EMU who have received or mentored a student for Boren, Truman or Rhodes scholarships. EMU has many students who would qualify for these highly competitive external scholarships and applicants will benefit greatly from advice from informed mentors. If you have received or helped a student apply for any of these awards, please contact Rebecca Sipe at rsipe@emich.edu. Involvement in this effort will provide university-level service on a mentoring group and include several meetings during the fall semester.
