The purpose of the Kit is to assist political science faculty at 2-year and 4-year institutions who are interested in developing or further developing Summer Bridge programs for students on their campus.
The Kit may consist of a Course Shell, a Welcome Video, template implementation calendar, template budget, and template program schedule of a full-day model.
In future years, as programs grow, we hope to include 1-day, 2-day, and 3-day modules. The Kit will be developed by a working group of faculty participants, with input from all participants.
Reflections and assessments of Summer Bridge 2020 pilots will be discussed at the Fall 2020 network meeting.
The budget proposes that approximately $1,000 be allocated to each institution in the region interested in implementing a Summer Bridge Program.
The goal is to develop an outline of a 1-day program agenda template that can be used to communicate to students and participants.
The goal is to develop at least 3 activity templates, such as an Ice Breaker, Networking With Peers, and Campus Scavenger Hunt.
The goal is to develop at least 3 workshop templates that focus on the knowledge, skills, and abilities students need to be a successful political science student.
The goal is to develop a panel template that can be used to organize a panel of speakers on a specific theme or topic useful to political science students.
The goal is to develop a budget template spreadsheet that clearly specifies the financial resources needed for a 1-day Summer Bridge Program.
The goal is to develop a request for support letter template that can be used by Summer Bridge organizers to solicit financial and in-kind support from internal and external supporters.
Canvas Learning Management System has been adopted by almost all California Community Colleges. A Canvas Course Shell will be created and available for download by faculty. The shell will feature a clear navigation, sequence of modules, and specific assignments, discussions, and quizzes that can be used to support the political science student community at your campus.
