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.
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.
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.
