Eastern Michigan University's SisterHOOD Scholars program is "a first-year student experience designed to increase retention and graduation rates for students who identify as Women of Color." They are currently recruiting new students for their Fall 2019 cohort; WEMU's Patrick Campion sat down with Abby Davis, Project Coordinator, to discuss why this program exists and how it benefits our community.
SisterHOOD is one of many "living and learning" communities at Eastern Michigan University. You can find more information about those Living Learning Theme Community programs here: https://www.emich.edu/residencelife/communities/index.php
