ECSU recruits, admits and retains approximately 25 students for its pre-college Summer
Bridges enrichment program. Participants improve their analytical and critical thinking
skills. The Summer Bridges program consists of intensive daily sessions over a four-week
period; academic instruction by university faculty; hands-on laboratory activities
that develop problem solving skills, verbal and quantitative reasoning skills; and
presentations that will inform the students of career options open to students with
degrees in science, technology, engineering or mathematics. This grant will be used
to fund the Summer Bridges Program and research assistance activities during the 2010-2011
academic year. The grant is funded by the National Science Foundation. Mr. Warren
Poole is the campus coordinator for this program.
