The events and outreach team in the TRV program is in charge of an important collection of tasks. The team provides the brain power that goes into creating and managing the events that are put on for the scholars. In doing so, they are facilitating the fellow-to-scholar relationship that is vital to the overall goal of the TRV program.
These events also help create a culture and camaraderie among our transfer and returning populations. Furthermore, the outreach part of this team is made up of the ultimate advocates for our scholars. Our outreach focuses on making sure our target demographic is spoken for on this campus. This sometimes involves collaboration with other programs or being apart of focus groups that are in place to further educate university staff on the needs of the transfer and returning population.
