University Studies is a collaboratory of high touch, student-first programs that emphasize autonomy, leadership, service, and the pursuit of a fulfilling personal and professional life.
Partner programs meet students where they are and assist in the articulation of short and long term goals and assist them in the making of curricular and extra-curricular choices that enhance opportunities. Students who take advantage of University Studies’ opportunities build out high quality professional networks that promote resilience and life satisfaction.
