There are many ways to get involved within the Scholars Community. Join a committee, go to a community event, and participate in our Alternative Spring Break!

Scholar Committees

Beyond monthly events, the Scholar Community has a number of committees to get involved in to help guide our programming and involvement on campus and within the metro-Detroit community.

Leadership Advisory Board

Leadership Advisory Board is a key component of the Engaged Scholar Program. It allows Scholars  to take on a high level leadership role within the Program, to help the program further develop and evolve. The Leadership Advisory Board consists of the Program's President, vice-President, and the chairpersons from each committee. 

Together, these members work to ensure that the overall flow of programmatic components of the Engaged Scholar Program run smoothly by developing ideas for social, service, and academic events.

Program Engagement Committee

The Program Engagement Committee works to develop programming for Scholars to come together and get to know one another.

Academic and Professional Development Committee

The Academic and Professional Development Committee identifies areas of growth for Engaged Scholars, and works to create opportunities for Scholars by collaborating with campus and community partners to develop skills to be successful academically and professionally. 

Metropolitan Impact Committee

This committee serves to find ways to create opportunity for the broader metro-Detroit community through service and community engagement.

Fundraising & Recognition Committee

This committee helps recognize your fellow Scholars through programs like the Impact Awards or creating Scholar of the Month recognition. The committee also helps raise funds for the program so our Scholars can participate in extra opportunities.

Social Media & Marketing Committee

This committee provides expertise on ways to create positive visibility and image of the Program and increase the reach of the Engaged Scholars Community through social media platforms.

Alternative Spring Break

Each year, the Scholar Community participates in the Alternative Spring Break (ASB) Program to do community service with local non-profits and bring lessons learned back to metro-Detroit to contribute to the further revitalization of the community. Check out pictures from the most recent trips!
