PR1ZE Orientation 2019

In 2008, Professor Emeritus Dr. Kenneth Ghee and Assistant Dean of retention in the College of Arts and Sciences Carol Tonge Mack founded the PR1ZE program (Putting Retention 1st in the Zest for Excellence) to foster and promote retention and graduation for under-served students. The PR1ZE Mentoring Program (Putting Retention 1st in the Zest for Excellence) is a faculty and administration mentorship program for historically underrepresented minority students, particularly focusing on African American students. The program began in the College of Arts and Sciences. In 2010, the program expanded to include students university-wide.
