Establish Learning Communities

The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) is a CSU systemwide program which targets first-generation and historically disadvantaged students. One of the components of EOP is the 6-week Summer Bridge transitional program. Summer Bridge students have great potential but enter the University with lower academic preparation than other CSUF students. In previous years, Summer Bridge participants were not provided programming after the summer ended. SSI funds will provide the opportunity to design and develop a first-year Learning Community that will offer students opportunities to connect, engage, and learn.

Supplemental Instruction is a proven successful intervention designed to greatly increase student success. In courses where there are high rates of students earning C-, D, and F grades or withdrawing from the course, Supplemental Instruction Leaders facilitate group sessions where students can improve their understanding of the course material, review and discuss important concepts, develop student strategies to prepare for exams. SSI funds will support 80 additional courses each fall and spring semester and 20 courses each summer by proving funds for program administrative support and SI Leaders. For the fall 2016 semester, SSI funding will support SI Leaders, Senior Leaders, a graduate student, and release time for faculty liaisons in the Colleges of ECS and HSS.

 

 

Learning Communities:

We continue to communicate with the Summer Bridge Learning Community via Instagram. During the spring we held a kick-off event and workshops.

Continued funding for SI Leaders to support course sections. These classes include accounting, biology, general and organic chemistry, computer science, economics, geology, health science, history, information and decision sciences, kinesiology, algebra and calculus, physics, political science, and psychology.
