Scholars Programs Growing
Stevenson offers three programs that allow students
to enhance their educational experience in supportive
communities of their similarly motivated peers.
The Service Scholars program gives students the opportunity
to extend their civic engagement in the community, reflect
upon possibilities for personal and social change, and
develop the necessary skills to succeed in the classroom and,
eventually, in the workforce.
The inaugural class of Service Scholars enrolled in fall
2016. Today, the Service Scholars Program provides students
the opportunity to continue to serve in the community and
develop further as civically engaged citizens. Service Scholars
work directly with nonprofits in the Greater Baltimore area
to support the needs and clients of the community partners.
Freshman Honors students can take one to two honors
courses per semester during their freshman year with simi-
larly motivated students in small class sections. While ap-
proaches differ by course, students work closely with their
faculty in Honors courses to take a deeper look at material
through discourse and analysis.
To expand the Freshman Honors experience, the Univer-
sity will launch an Honors Program in fall 2019. This robust,
four-year program will bring together Honors general educa-
tion classes and Honors experiences in individual majors to
help students become independent, creative, and analytical
thinkers. The Honors Program will be a place for students
build relationships and make connections between disci-
plines and with faculty and fellow students.
Leadership Scholars is comprehensive initiative through
which students can engage in leadership education through
personal exploration, community engagement, and collab-
orative problem solving. Guided by its theme, “Leadership
through Action, Not Position,” Leadership Scholars will de-
velop effective and ethical leadership skills that prepare them
to make a positive difference on campus and in the larger
Theatre and Nursing Collaboration
In October, the Theatre and Media Performance program and Nursing pro-
gram teamed up for a unique educational experience for their students.
Through a series of simulations, nursing students were tasked with deliver-
ing news about terminally ill patients to their families, as role-played by the
theatre students.“This collaboration was one of the most exciting of my ca-
reer as a theatre educator,” says Ryan Clark, M.F.A., Program Coordinator,
Theatre and Media Performance. “Theatre students worked on character
development in a way that transcended traditional ‘scene study’ work to
create real characters dealing with end-of-life in a very realistic way. This
kind of actor training is unique and Stevenson is leading the way.”
