Community Partnerships

Students engage in a social justice mission focused on inclusive advocacy in the literary arts.

Community Fellowship Partners

We work with community partners to provide fellowship, internship and professional development opportunities for our students. This off-campus partnership network supports low-to moderate income students who are ethnically inclusive and have a high potential to succeed in the program.
