The Multicultural Leadership Scholars Program (MLS) supports the development of leaders from diverse backgrounds, experiences, concerns, knowledge, interests, and accomplishments. Through coursework, service, and socialization, scholars develop a deep awareness of their own values and belief systems as well as those of others. The program features meaningful relationships with professors and peer mentors, diverse practicum classes, financial support, career exploration and an increased sense of community. MLS is open to students of all majors who are interested in exploring leadership, and who come from underrepresented groups in higher education, including first-generation students, students of color and LGBTQIA students.
