Strengthening Education and Employment for Diverse Students (SEEDS)

SEEDS is designed to support underrepresented students in our college from matriculation to graduation.  One of the ways SEEDS will do this is through offering Mentored Employment Program (see below) experiences which emphasize meaningful work and the development of supportive professional relationships. We offer support services and help students access the resources across campus that are needed for a successful and exciting educational experience.
