Community Scholars Program

The Community Scholars Program is a comprehensive program to promote student success inside and outside the classroom.  Students in this program will benefit from advising, mentoring, tutoring, and career services. 

Students will have opportunities to participate in service activities at the university in the local, regional, and international communities, attend seminars, and go on field and/or service trips. Students may also conduct projects and present at conferences. 

We also have a dedicated student lounge located on the 4th floor of the One Main Building where members can study, collaborate, share experiences, or simply relax between classes. 

There are no fees or applications needed to join this learning community to enrich your UHD experience! It is simply a fun and easy way to learn and grow with your community.
