About Us

The Brotherhood and Sisterhood Scholars Program was founded in 2014 with the mission to combat low retention and graduation rates among identifying students of color at Eastern Michigan University (EMU).

Through collaborative university partnerships, the Brotherhood and Sisterhood Scholars program guides students in their transition to college by providing an extended orientation, a residential community, designated courses, mentorship and workshops.  Dedicated staff facilitate programming centered around three key developmental areas: academic, human and socio-cultural.  Students are connected to staff, faculty, alumni and community members in order to provide them with a network of support throughout their collegiate journey and beyond.
