And with that we lead 

And here we blaze our trail

The Trailblazer Elite Program is a unique and prestigious organization designed to ensure that first-generation college students are successful in meeting their academic, career, and personal goals. The program provides opportunities, resources, skills development, and connects students with a mentor to help prepare them for their future careers. Our focus is to help students successfully navigate through college with strong support systems. 

Creating a welcoming environment and building a sense of community and trust is a priority for The Trailblazer Elite Program. The President’s cabinet, mentors, academic advisors, counselors, faculty, and staff are part of a support structure that helps guide our students every step of the way. 

Ensuring that students successfully graduate from UNT Dallas is the primary goal of The Trailblazer Elite Program.
