First Scholars Champion Campus
Once completing the requirements of the First Scholars phase, institutions receive the Champion Campus designation and enter the fourth phase of the Network. A Champion Campus serves as a national leader in advancing first-generation efforts and contributes to an important knowledge base on evidence-based practices, leadership engagement, and scaling supports.
To maintain the Champion Campus designation, institutions must meet annual requirements, serve as a Network mentor, and remain active in the Postsecondary Data Partnership. Each Champion Campus receives regular professional development, access to resources, and engagement with Expert Guides. As a benefit, those in the Champion Campus phase have access to innovation grants, discounted conference attendance, and more.
The Center is currently serving 50+ institutions in the First Scholars phase in preparation for advancement to Champion Campus designation in early 2024.
