How Does the PASCAL Center Serve Scholarship Communities?

The PASCAL Center stewards several foundation scholarships and establishes an overarching community for students from each scholarship program. As scholars, each student will carry forward the rich traditions, history, and focus of their individual scholarship communities. The PASCAL Center helps to support student throughout their time at Mines by:

  • Connecting scholars with fellow student scholars, faculty, and staff at Mines
  • Infusing and promoting campus resources
  • Engaging students in unique extracurricular activities with peers, faculty, and donors
  • Helping students feel supported through wraparound services
  • Developing students to become leaders and young professionals through exclusive academic programming and professional development

The goal of the PASCAL Center is to help guarantee a signature student experience for all scholars during their time at Mines!
