Professor Yolanda Vega, Department of Phelps Scholars
The Phelps Scholars Program is in 20th year and has grown from 39 students at its inception to 90-100 students. While its commitment remains to provide first-year students with an intentional and diverse living and learning experience focused on race, culture and community, this project set out to review its impact on participants’ lives over the years. Through a survey and interviews, data was gathered regarding how the program shaped participants’ Hope College experience, career trajectory and life choices. This information will be used to tell the story of the Phelps Scholars Program while informing and strengthening this important first-year experience program.
