PATHS Scholarship Program

Pursue PATHS to a Bright Future . . .

Information for Current Scholars

Annual PATHS Retreat

To foster a strong PATHS community, all participating faculty and students will take part in a 2-day Colorado retreat shortly before each new academic year. The goal of this retreat will be to promote teamwork and community through teambuilding exercises, individual assessments and professional development presentations. Returning scholars will apply the skills and information they learned during their first retreat to provide leadership for the next retreat and serve as mentors to the second set of scholars.
