Event description

Description

We don't just hand out free curricula. We offer free training too!

Clearly, access to higher education alone is not enough to provide educational opportunity to all when low-income, first-generation college-going students are the least likely to graduate. Success in higher education is an issue for all students. Currently, only 38 percent of all first-time postsecondary students at two-year institutions and 65 percent of those at four-year institutions graduate within six years. However, the graduation rates are even worse for low-income, first-in-the-family college- students. Low-income students are less than half as likely to earn a bachelor’s degree as higher-income students.

ECMC is pleased to provide nationally recognized curricula and facilitated trainings targeting student success in higher education. “Realizing the College Dream” was created to provide tools to help educators increase the success rates of those students who are the most at risk for dropping out: first-in-the-family college students, those from low-income families, commuter students, and nontraditional age students.

Highlights:

  • Facilitation by professional trainers
  • Highly interactive training environment
  • Printed and digital editions of the curricula for each participant
  • Innovative applications for curricula implementation
  • Experiential, game-based techniques for teaching fundamentals

When you're a teacher, few things are more frustrating than watching bright students with endless potential rule out college because they think it's too expensive or a waste of time. Realizing the College Dream can help you reach those students and show them that college is one opportunity they can't afford to miss.

“Realizing the College Dream” helps educators increase college attendance among low-income, first-generation students with:

  • Hands-on activities and interactive workshops about planning and paying for college
  • Experiences that challenge students to see themselves in college
  • Eye-opening information about the economic value of college
