Reminders for Universities
In order to provide the best possible program for all student participants, we ask that at least one faculty member per University member school actively participate in the program. Faculty Members from participating universities are responsible for recruiting student participants, handling the application process at their university, mentoring/advising students within the program, and engaging with other industry and academic Teach Access facilitators to develop and run the program. We expect this to take about 2-3 hours of your time per week.
As you promote this program at your school, several models have been used by Teach Access Faculty to support students participating in the program . Faculty may choose to highlight which model matches how their students will participate on the student flyer:
- Extra-curricular opportunity: No credit is offered, but can advertise that participation would look great on resume
- Independent Study (xxx number of credits): Faculty support students as a directed research project or independent study opportunity.
- Part of the course: (for example, 3 credits of AL 491: Special Topics in Arts and Letters)
- The class will meet 4-5 times prior to the program and 2-3 times after returning. Class meetings after returning will be determined at a later date. Final projects will be due at the end of Summer Semester II.
