ABOUT THE PROGRAM
T.O.W.E.R.S. stands for Teaching Others What Establishes Real Success and is a leadership development program coordinated by the Office of Multicultural Student Services.
TOWERS aims to assist underrepresented students at Ferris State University, but is open to all Ferris students to participate! The program encourages, motivates, and inspires Ferris students to become leaders, by providing opportunities for student engagement, learning and development outside of the classroom!
