Majors Eligible to Join

BOLD is a student success program open to all students with a major in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, including Open Option.

Program Description

Bridging Opportunities in Leadership and Diversity (BOLD) is a fantastic opportunity for first-year students striving for academic success, leadership skills, and new connections, including being paired with a BOLD peer mentor. BOLD is both a 1.0 credit course and an opportunity to get involved on campus. We utilize research-based practices on multicultural student leadership development to prepare those interested in leading change within communities of color.

The BOLD Learning Community offers three main components:

  • Orientation course in the fall and seminar course in the spring
  • 1:1 peer mentoring
  • Academic and social events with all learning
  • community students and peer mentors
