Leveraging Campus Partnerships to Implement Innovative Curriculum: Pandemic Edition

Presenter(s): Melissa Raucci & Jazmin Dunham, University of Rochester
Concurrent Workshop: WM2
College Programs

Building strong partnerships on our campuses is essential to the success of any TRiO program; however, in the wake of the ongoing pandemic, building and sustaining these partnerships have become increasingly challenging. In an effort to align with the conference theme, this session will focus on the partnerships created at the University of Rochester between the David T. Kearns Center and the University’s curriculum committee and how this partnership led to the creation of a credit-bearing seminar course that can be implemented in SSS or McNair Programs. We will also explore the curriculum of this course, including pedagogy and course components.
