Student Support Programs
The Denver Scholarship Foundation wants every college student to successfully complete a college degree or certificate. Below are some helpful resources and programs that are available at CSU.
- TRIO Student Support Services/Academic Advancement Center (AAC) – The AAC is committed to providing a transformative undergraduate experience and supporting students from low-income, first-generation, and disability backgrounds succeed from orientation through graduation. Through a student-centered, strengths-based approach providing intentional, holistic academic support including tutoring, seminars, mentoring, leadership development, career and graduate school placement, the AAC aims to increase academic performance, retention and graduation of students from underrepresented backgrounds.
- Key Communities – The Key Communities are highly diverse first and second year learning communities designed to assist students with their transition to and through the university. Based on active and experiential learning through interdisciplinary classes, service-learning, academic and career exploration, undergraduate research and leadership development, Key aims to increase retention and academic performance of participants, encourage campus and community involvement, and promote diversity awareness.
- President’s Leadership Program – a three year, fourteen credit leadership development experience for undergraduate students. In addition to traditional classroom learning, students participate in retreats, service projects, and internships that allow them to apply their knowledge and training.
- College of Natural Sciences Learning Community – a residential learning community for students with majors in the College of Natural Sciences. Provides academic support to our members by facilitating activities designed with a current understanding of how learning works.
- Summer Bridge – the summer bridge program is a way of connecting you to campus resources and starting your first year on the right foot. It’s a time filled with activities, instruction, and information critical to your college success.
