Implementing and Administering Summer Bridge Programs - SSS

Building Bridges Not Walls:  Implementing and administering summer bridge programs to serve traditional and adult college students (SSS Programs). Summer Bridge programs are designed to ease the transition to college and support college success by providing students with the academic skills and social resources needed to succeed in a college environment.  The bridging period traditionally occurs in the summer between high school and college and lasts between 2 to 6 weeks.  Since their introduction, programs have modified the composition of this crucial tool to assist both traditional and post-traditional student success.  Some bridge programs follow the conventional model involving an in-depth orientation to college life, training in skills necessary for college success, and accelerated credit-bearing academic work.  Other bridge programs may last several days and assist students by utilizing a social-emotional framework to build student engagement and reduce transitional student issues of new enrollees or those returning to higher education.  This interactive webinar will introduce TRIO college professionals to multiple summer bridge models and discuss ways to enhance current or create new programs.
