THE EMERGE COLLEGE SUCCESS TEAM

The College Success Team provides holistic support to all EMERGE College Scholars.  The team leads initiatives to help Scholars matriculate, persist, and graduate from selective colleges and universities. 

THE TEAM: MANAGERS OF PERSISTENCE

Each EMERGE College Scholar is assigned a Manager of Persistence (MoP) who provides direct advising and support throughout the scholar's college journey.  Each MoP supports EMERGE Scholars by region and oversees an average of 330 Scholars.

PERSISTENCE INITIATIVES

In addition to directly supporting students with one-on-one check-ins, transfer applications, and re-enrollment plans, the College Success Team leads several initiatives to help ensure  EMERGE College Scholars matriculate, persist, and graduate from selective colleges and universities. 

OPERATION

MATRICULATION

 MoP's provide EMERGE Scholars with direct advising, support, and campus specific information about the transition to college in the summer after high school. 

STUDENT EMERGENCY FUND

We bridge  financial gaps in a serious time of need. The fund is a supplemental, short-term  financial resource for EMERGE College Scholars that are facing a  sudden financial crisis and unable to meet  immediate and essential  expenses.   

 

Scholars who are in need are encouraged to contact their Manager of Persistence directly.
