2015-2016 BioCORE Scholars, Peer Mentors and Learning Assistant:

The 2015-2016 BioCORE Scholars program is a new initiative of the Biology department, under the direction of Dr. Elena Brezynski. The goals of the BioCORE Scholars Program are to promote academic success, career discernment, create peer and community networks, gain research experience, and develop Peer Mentor leaders for future BioCORE Scholars. We are proud to announce our first cohort of 10 BioCORE Scholars, who will be working with a team of four peer mentors and a learning assistant as they progress through the first-year Biology curriculum. Congratulations to all of our Scholars!
