Volume 17, Issue 3
The July 2020 issue of E-Source for College Transitions begins with a look at how staff at Northern Arizona University built an online advising
shell to respond to increased student demand for advising services. The remaining
articles focus on strategies for representing low-income, underrepresented students—many
of whom come from rural backgrounds. For example, the University of Kansas, Metropolitan
Community College, Western Iowa Tech Community College, and Kansas City Kansas Community
College collaborated on a college access and transition program designed for children
of migrant, seasonal, and temporary farmworkers. All students at Kentucky’s Berea
College are low-income, and its summer bridge program seeks to connect first-year
students with academic and community support. Finally, the University of Arkansas
has launched a summer bridge program to increase college completion and career readiness
among underrepresented students from rural parts of the state.
