1. Participants will learn the nuts and bolts of creating a partnership between a CC and a Univ.
2. Participants will learn about challenges to creating such a partnership.
3. Participants will be able to share their experiences in preparing a seamless transfer policy from CC to Univ.
The project builds on research on the role that institutional agents play in support of Latino and other underrepresented students to achieve transfer success.
Transitioning Math Majors into Teaching (TMMT) is a Noyce Track 1 project that is attempting to develop a model for seamless transition of math majors from a community college to the state university; ultimately culminating in secondary school mathematics teaching credentials. The project builds on research on the role that institutional agents play in support of Latino and other underrepresented students to achieve transfer success. Part of this research stems from the doctoral dissertation of one of the project’s community college partners. Sharing the process of building the partnership and early experiences with implementing shared experiences for the freshmen/sophomore Noyce TMMT Associates, may help other institutions attempting to nurture students in the transfer process who plan to become secondary school mathematics teachers. Participants will also gain knowledge about the early work of this project to select Noyce TMMT Associates and Scholars in the first semester of funding. The presenters will have time for an open discussion on building these types of partnerships, and hope to gain knowledge from the participants as well.
