The BOLD Center at Douglass


The BOLD Center (Building Opportunities for Leadership and Career Development) is an exciting new initiative that positions Douglass students for excellence in work and life by providing an innovative and enriching set of leadership, mentoring, career and personal development programs. BOLD programs inspire students to define what success means for them and support students as they learn how to create and live a life by design.

The BOLD Center helps students clarify their academic and career goals, connects them with role models and mentors whose lives and work are exemplary, and prepares them for success in their personal and professional lives.
