On May 8, Arnold Mitchem, president of the Council for Opportunity in Education (COE), was honored at a celebration of the first full year of the Arnold Mitchem Fellowship program, housed within EM&M's Center for Access and Attainment. The fellowship is designed to build on the success of DePaul's federally funded TRiO McNair Scholars Program by expanding the pathway to doctoral attainment and faculty careers for low-income and first-generation students.
