LEGACY Leadership and Mentoring Program

The LEGACY Leadership and Mentoring Program supports the retention and graduation of historically underrepresented students who are of sophomore, junior, or senior status at the University of Central Florida. LEGACY Scholars engage in seminars, workshops, networking events, socials, and community partnerships which are designed to facilitate their personal and professional development.


LEGACY Scholars are paired with mentors who assist them in acquiring the knowledge and skills to become effective students, purposeful leaders, and involved citizens. Although each relationship is different, all mentors work to keep their LEGACY scholar moving forward by smoothing out some of the rough places, cutting through some of the “red tape,” and serving as comforters when tasks seem impossible. Mentoring and other program activities emphasize LEGACY’s four Pillars of Success:


  • Identity Development
  • Leadership
  • Scholarship
  • Career Development
