About TLS

About TLS

Students in the Trustee Leader Scholar Program (TLS) propose, design, and implement civic engagement projects based on their own passionate interests. TLS projects are local, national, and international, and may be initiated at any point during a student's college career. Several TLS projects have grown into permanent, College-sponsored ventures. These include the Bard Prison Initiative, which offers degree-bearing programs at five New York State prisons; La Voz, an award-winning, Spanish-language magazine that serves the Hudson Valley Hispanic community; and the Early College in New Orleans, a satellite campus of Bard within the city's public high schools. The hallmark of a TLS project is the student's ownership of the work.
