WHT Professional Staff

All scholars in the William H. Thompson Scholars Learning Community will have the great opportunity to learn and work with the full-time staff of WHT. All scholars are assigned a Program Coordinator as their primary point of contact. Program Coordinators will offer support and direction to their scholars while at UNL with their Susan T.
