Program Director Liz Sabel with Student Success Mentors

Normandale’s Upward Bound program received a grant from the Great Lakes Higher Education Guarantee Corporation to enhance ACT testing preparation in the 2013-2014 academic year.

The federally funded TriO program provided academic support to first generation, low-income high school students, creating a clear pathway and message that college is attainable and accessible.

Normandale Student Success Mentors (SSM) received training through a grant from the C. Charles Jackson Foundation to improve their engagement and teamwork skills and enhance their role as tutors and mentors in NCC 1000, Normandale’s new student experience course.

The two-day, highly interactive On Course workshop developed SSM leadership and facilitation skills and built stronger relationships with NCC 1000 instructors, advisors, and counselors.
