King/Chavez Scholars

King/Chavez Scholars

The King/Chavez Scholars program was initiated at UW-Whitewater in the fall of 1997. It was designed to compliment the array of multicultural/disadvantaged programs at UW-Whitewater that serve the interests and needs of first generation/low income TRIO students. The King Chavez Scholars program is designed to attract and retain scholars for participation in the following: McNair Scholars Program; University Honors Program; Undergraduate Research Program.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Education:

"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically... Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."

Cesar Chavez on Education:

"Once social change begins, it cannot be reversed. You cannot uneducate the person who has learned to read. You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. You cannot oppress the people who are not afraid anymore. We have seen the future, and the future is ours."

The King/Chavez Scholars program and XL Academics have worked diligently to design and customize this Online Peer Mentoring system to fit the need of the on-campus peer mentoring initiative. This system is designed to supplement the efforts of the on-campus peer mentoring initiative, and assist in the ease of communication between you and your student mentee.
