The DRIVEN (Directives for Retention Initiatives and Valuing Education Network) Scholars Program utilizes a comprehensive advising model to monitor academic progress and degree completion. The DRIVEN Scholars Program provides leadership opportunities and assists students with advocacy in various social, cultural and academic advising needs.
DRIVEN scholars participate in a four year intrusive advising model. Benefits for DRIVEN scholars include formal assignment of an auxiliary advisor to assist with academic monitoring, educational planning, goal setting and assistance for working through academic, social and cultural concerns. Additionally, DRIVEN scholars benefit from priority enrollments in high impact programming such as summer bridge experiences, connections to university scholarships, awards and internships, and faculty and peer mentorship opportunities.
The DRIVEN Scholars program is available to incoming freshmen students from African-American, Native American, Latino/a, and Asian students.
