How does our Program help you?
Some important factors in student satisfaction, motivation, and success are: feeling confident in your abilities, feeling like what you are doing in college is helping you prepare for your future, and feeling like you have input intowhat and how you learn. These factors are known to impact the time and effort you put towards your education as well as your overall student satisfaction. The CSR Scholar’s Program offers programming based on current theoretical and research evidence examining college student success and is intended to help you develop knowledge and skills that graduate programs and future employers are looking for. Furthermore, we ensure that you have the opportunity to make your own decisions regarding your degree of involvement in the Program (provided you meet minimum program participation requirements). Our Program staff and faculty mentors are committed to supporting your success.
