Join Us in Celebrating Groups
Access for historically underserved communities is one of the key first steps to building a diverse and inclusive campus. There are few better testaments to this fact than the Groups Scholars Program, which this year celebrates 50 years of making a college education possible for underserved, high achieving students. In 1968, the Groups Scholars Program welcomed its first class of students. Fifty years and 13,000 scholars later, the Groups Scholars Program continues to open doors to education for students from historically underserved communities. This year, please join us in celebrating fifty years of Generating Minds with Groups scholars, alumni, and friends.
