Huskie Service Scholars Fellows

Huskie Service Scholars (HSS) is a program in which eligible freshmen and first-semester transfer students connect through a supportive peer network and engage in weekly service activities on-campus and in the community. Students work in teams at different campus partner sites and meet monthly during cohort meetings geared toward professional development and academic resources. Each team is led by a Peer Mentor who facilitates additional team meetings and group reflection on their service experience.
