Grant Summary

$200,000 over 24 months to enhance student learning among the colleges' first-generation and underrepresented minority students, especially during students' first year of college. Efforts at both Agnes Scott and Davidson will focus on (a) engaging a wide range of faculty in workshops and course revisions in order to improve the pedagogy in gateway courses and (b) assessing and strengthening the quality of support in academic resource centers. Both colleges are committed to implementing permanent changes on campus and disseminating the results of their work beyond their own campuses, through presentations at national conferences as appropriate.
