Information about the Scholars Program:

The Wilkinson Family Servant Scholars Program prepares the next generation of servant-leaders by linking the college’s brightest students with community leaders and mentors so they can study local needs—and decide how to best meet them. The group lives in the newly renovated Broad Street Apartments, located midway between campus and the downtown square, the perfect home to link campus and community with scholarly service.

Each year, 12 juniors are chosen to start their two-year journey in the groundbreaking program. While living as a community, each student is engaged in active learning and service through individual internships at local nonprofit agencies.

Servant Scholar graduates have moved on to impressive master’s and doctoral programs that will launch careers of influence—spreading the impact and philosophy of servant-leadership across the nation and world.
