Carl Darnell, Assistant Dean for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, has been appointed Director of the Hudson & Holland Scholars Program at Indiana University.
The Hudson & Holland Scholars Program (HHSP) is a scholarship and academic support program for high-achieving underrepresented minorities. It’s the largest merit-based scholarship program at IU with over 2,100 students currently enrolled. Originally, the program started as two separate entities, the Minority Achievers Program (MAP) and the Mathematics and Science Scholarship (MASS) Program, until 2004 when they were joined and renamed in recognition of Herman Hudsonand James Holland.
As director, Darnell wants to honor the original spirit of the Hudson & Holland Scholars Program. He will retain his role at the School of Education and will expand the work he’s already doing there to benefit all students, not just those within the school or the program.
