Renaissance Scholars Program
Welcome to the Renaissance Scholars Program (RSP) at Moreno Valley College!
The Renaissance Scholars Program is born
out of the Harlem Renaissance which produced
a rebirth in African American art, literature,
music, and culture.
Ultimately to be part of the Renaissance Scholars Program means rebirth of self and the collective rebirth of others.
The Renaissance Scholars Program is dedicated to increase the number of educationally underserved students who enroll in our institution, earn their degrees, transfer to four-year colleges or universities, and return to the community as leaders and mentors to future generations.
The Renaissance Scholars Program seeks to educate African American students about their African cultural heritage in order to promote and uplift an African American centered consciousness. The development of the academic, professional and leadership potential of African American students is centered on seven program principles: unity, self, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith. Student centeredness is reflected in the area of program identification of the needs and concerns of Moreno Valley College African American students and the development of interventions to address the needs and concerns.
