Following is a list of student groups in the Scholars Community where students may take on various leadership roles:
- The College Park Scholars Ambassadors program is the Scholars student group that assists with recruiting and promoting the program. Ambassadors also assist with special projects and provide valuable feedback on the program to the Scholars central office. For more information on the program, including information on how to join, please visit our Ambassadors homepage.
- The College Park Scholars Student Advisory Board is a unique involvement opportunity for Freshman and Sophomore Scholars to serve their peers, their programs, and their community. Each Scholars Program has two seats on the Board - one freshman and one sophomore. For more information on the Advisory Board, including information on how to apply, please visit our Advisory Board homepage.
- Lakeland STARs is an academic enrichment program that serves 60+ 1st - 6th grade children from Paint Branch Elementary School in College Park. Children in the program are matched one-on-one with a volunteer UMD tutor, and they meet each week on Wednesday or Thursday. One of the goals of the program is to get elementary school-aged children excited about college, so at every session, the tutors provide homework help to the children, and also participate in an academic enrichment activity (e.g. trip to Byrd Stadium, experiments with Chemistry Club). Tutoring sessions take place at Centreville Hall and Paint Branch Elementary School. For more information on Lakeland STARS, including information on how to join, please visit our Lakeland STARS homepage.
- Cambridge Community Hall Councils are a great place to make a difference in your community! Hall Council provides students the possibility of leadership positions that are intended to help enhance the quality of life for the community. There are numerous ways in which a new student or a returnee can be involved. The best way to find out more is to ask your Resident Assistant or your Resident Director. For more information about the campus Residence Hall Association (RHA), and leadership roles in Hall Council, visit their Residence Hall Association homepage.
Peer Mentors focus on building community and encouraging academic success for incoming students, connecting the freshmen and sophomore classes, and offering a valuable leadership opportunity for sophomore students. During the 2014-2015 school year, we are expanding ALL Scholars programs. For more information on Peer Mentors, including how to join, please visit our Peer Mentors page.
