Welcome to the Scholars’ Hub!
The Scholars’ Hub is a unique student center designed to provide a safe space for learning, and building community, self-awareness and expression. Our college’s former foster youth, housing and food insecure, justice impacted, and LGBTQIA+ students will have access to counselors with trauma-informed approaches, free computer and printing privileges, study tables, near-peer support, and much more.

Our goal is to support our students with fellow LGBTQIA+ community members and our allies.
