The Hollingsworth Scholars comment on the program:

"The program helped me to open my eyes and broaden my thinking"

"The diversity session certainly taught me a lot about understanding WHY someone else may see things differently than you instead of arguing because you think you're the only one who is right."

"The group work taught me how to, as a leader, look at an issue from all sides with as little bias as possible"

"The session about poverty made me think about the causes of poverty besides its simple existence"
