Welcome to Bard TLS
The Trustee Leader Scholar (TLS) Program of Bard College supports undergraduate and leadership development in the context of hands-on, student-initiated community engagement projects. These projects represent thousands of hours of planning, lifting, teaching, building, weeding, tutoring, singing, writing, cleaning, and counseling. Students in the Trustee Leader Scholar Program 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.
