The QUEST Scholars program includes a comprehensive four-year plan that involves training, experiential learning opportunities, community and university service, as well as the chance to engage in self-reflection regarding leadership development.
Participants begin their first year with interactive leadership training followed by opportunities to apply their new leadership skills. In the second through fourth years, students will participate in on-campus experiential learning opportunities, continued leadership development and opportunities to engage in community and university service.
