“We must send an unwavering message to every student, parent, faculty and staff member that experiencing college success is contingent on establishing a college culture as well as providing college readiness in our elementary and secondary schools.”
“The faculty development UVU provides gives the high school adjunct faculty opportunities to get with other educators who face the same requirements, same curriculum, and same resistances. When they meet as a group, their personal conversations are as important (if not more so) than any materials we provide for them.”
