Community Engagement

Scholars are expected to engage in their communities (Vanderbilt, Nashville, global) for approximately 20 hours per month during the academic year and in at least one of their undergraduate summers. In addition, during their senior year, Ingram Scholars serve as mentors to fellow Ingram Scholars and other students interested in service. These lists are generated every spring.
