Participants will learn recruitment strategies and lessons learned from those strategies.
Results of the first year of level 1 work in the Four Corners Noyce Program at San Juan College will be presented.
This session will explain first-year recruitment and placement methods for level I and II participants and Noyce Scholars within the Four Corners Noyce Program. The Four Corners Noyce Program is a shared institutional endeavor that encompasses a variety of recruitment methods and process for mentoring and bridging students from a two-year college to a four-year institution. The Four Corners area is a unique combination of cultures. For this reason, diversity is emphasized at both 2-year and 4-year institutions and presents exceptional opportunities for participants in a variety of K-12 settings. A variety of recruitment and placement activities will be discussed including the use of a county-wide math consortium as a placement tool, Julia Robinson Math Festivals, math mindset professional developments, STEM classroom recruitment, and a middle school STEM Expo. Lessons learned and implications for future processes moving forward will be discussed.
