Sullivan Scholars understand that the value of education extends beyond their experiences as individuals and incorporates a commitment to serving others on both a local and global scale. They recognize the value of diversity in both thought and action and seek opportunities to engage others in efforts to effect positive social change.
Sullivan Scholars involve themselves widely with student organizations and community groups, knowing they have a responsibility to the communities and cultures of which they are a part. They also maintain an involved interest in issues of national and international importance: engaging other cultures through education abroad and working for candidates and causes that support a just and humane world.
