BFSA, in collaboration with the Office of Diversity Initiatives, has launched a leadership development and mentoring program. The mission of the Leadership and Mentoring Program is to foster a more inclusive and responsive environment for ethnic minority students at UCF by enhancing the successful development of personal, educational, professional, and career goals. The focus of the Leadership and Mentoring Program will be the development of three core competencies in underrepresented students – Identity, Leadership, and Scholarship.
The Joseph C. Andrews Mentoring Breakfast is the annual culminating event for this and other campus mentoring programs for underrepresented students at UCF.
LEGACY Leadership and Mentoring Program
The LEGACY Leadership and Mentoring Program supports the retention and success of first-year Black/African American students at the University of Central Florida.
PILLARS of SUCCESS:
· Identity Development
· Career Development
LEGACY Scholars are assigned a faculty/staff member as their committed Mentor for their first academic year. Mentors are members of UCF’s Black Faculty and Staff Association (BFSA) and assist LEGACY Scholars with acquiring the knowledge and skills to be effective students.
LEGACY Scholars will engage in monthly meetings from August-April where they have the opportunity to learn from the academic and professional journey of UCF faculty and staff members. LEGACY Scholars will also receive special invitations to campus-wide events such as the BFSA Joseph C. Andrews Mentoring Breakfast. >>>READ MORE
