Nineteen undergraduate students have been named Public Service and Outreach Scholars for the 2017-18 academic year.

The students are part of a year-long program that provides them with a deeper understanding of PSO’s mission through meetings and outreach, helps them link these experiences with their career and educational goals, and creates a community of student scholars who understand the role of university outreach and engagements. Over the next few months, we’ll be featuring each of the students on our website and linking their spotlights to their names below.
