The Tower Center is pleased to welcome the third cohort of the Highland Capital Management (HCM) Tower Scholars, class of 2019. These 10 scholars have come to SMU from across the country and have equally diverse research interests ranging from science policy and human rights to international cooperation on energy and natural resource challenges.
A key feature of the Tower Scholars Program is the senior-year capstone project in which students are placed with area institutions to carry out policy-related research. This semester, members of the 2017 Legacy Cohort will be making contributions at Hunt Mexico, Parkland Memorial Hospital, the SMU Campus Police and Catholic Charities. Upon concluding the research, each student will present the host institution with a policy white paper.
