Kathleen Portillo, an incoming member of the Class of 2014, was recently profiled in the Boston Globe.

Portillo is among the latest group of Posse Scholars at Union. Since 2006, the College has partnered with the Boston branch of the Posse Foundation, which also has sites in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and Washington, D.C. Now celebrating its 20th year, the Posse Foundation selects extraordinary young people with leadership potential who excel academically, but may be overlooked by the traditional college selection process, and send them in multicultural teams – or posses – to top schools like Union.
