The DRIVEN 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 two to 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. First year DRIVEN Scholars are assigned to a Peer Mentor to help with the adjustment to college and to assist in the formation of building a community at UW-Platteville. 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.
