DescriptionFrom Potential to Promise – Developing Scholars, one Eureka moment at a time.
In this talk, I will tell the story of our work with some truly remarkable undergraduate students at Rutgers-Camden, who despite many odds have achieved success that is unprecedented for the Camden campus. (Camden, New Jersey, is among the most underprivileged cities in the US). I will discuss the various challenges that we faced and some ideas that have worked very well (and some that have not) for us. We have been applying some of these ideas in our work with high school students and students at other institutions.
