Talking About Teaching

DeWitt Wallace Library 309

Adrienne Christiansen (Political Science and Director of Serie Center) and Ann Minnick (Academic Programs and Advising) will present "'Something Important is Happening Here:' Macalester Pathways and First Generation Students."  Today's speakers spent the last two years as part of a taskforce responsible for building a pilot bridge program for incoming first generation students.  The program called "Macalester Pathways," launched in summer 2017 and was co-led by Christiansen and Minnick, along with Professors Brian Lozenski and Ruthanne Kurth-Schai of Education Studies.  What did we learn about Macalester's first generation folks through this process (students, faculty, and staff) and how did we determine the program's goals?  How did students in the first cohort respond?  Please join us as we discuss Macalester Pathways and some of the ways it changed us.
