We believe that the next generation of leaders needs imagination and courage to constructively engage in the challenges and opportunities of our age. The Limited Resources identity/affinity community is designed to facilitate opportunities, networking, collaboration, and mentorship, while helping students navigate the day-to-day campus experience.
