The Brotherhood and Sisterhood (BHSH) Scholars Program uses a holistic approach to assist first-year students during their transition to postsecondary education and adulthood.

Although this program is open to all racial and ethnic backgrounds, it will likely prove particularly meaningful and helpful to students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds such as those identifying as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous [and] People of Color). This program is located within the office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI), a university department committed to creating an inclusive environment for students and providing access to supportive resources to empower students to achieve their personal, academic, and professional goals.

Two cohorts exist within our program: Brotherhood Scholars for students identifying as men and Sisterhood Scholars for students identifying as women. Through student-centered programming facilitated by dedicated staff and faculty, we work to instill a strong sense of community, embolden students to strengthen their academic performance and stamina on their path toward degree completion. Our collaborative university partnerships offer an extended orientation, a residential living-learning community, designated courses, academic coaching, mentorship, and structured workshops.
