"Take the Lead" Donation Founds Hamline Leadership Scholars Program

A new initiative has been funded as part of Hamline’s Take the Lead Campaign. The Hamline Leadership Scholars Program was created with the goal of increasing student retention and graduation outcomes. This program, started by a multi-year commitment from Steve and Katherine Austin Mahle, will support pre-matriculation preparation for students, give students access to campus housing and the meal plan, provide high-impact experiences such as internships, and deliver intentional coaching and dedicated support throughout students’ academic careers. Hamline data and the Mahles’ past experience have shown these key elements are critical to improving student outcomes and post-graduation success.

Hamline is grateful to Kathi and Steve Mahle for their exemplary generosity in support of Hamline students! Others, also, are encouraged to join with Kathi and Steve in making gifts to the Leadership Scholars Program.
