First class of LEADS graduates guide the way!

Nearly 220 students have enrolled in the program. Melanie Shell-Weiss, associate professor and chair of integrative, religious, and intercultural studies, said the program was designed, in part, to fit Whitmer's initiative to increase the number of state residents who have bachelor's degrees. 

"When we built the program last year, it was with an eye toward the 2 million Michigan residents who have some college credit but no bachelor’s degree," Shell-Weiss said. "Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit and it has underscored the value of the program."
