A Collaboration between Lehman College, Bronx Community College, and Hostos Community College
PTS³ is a coherent and collaborative program that will engage senior and community college students in activities designed to build their cultural capital through: intensive advisement; mastery of academic content and skills; and participation in STEM activities that are central to STEM interest, efficacy, and success.
PTS³ will also address administrative barriers that plague transfer students through joint planning and collaborative implementation. The project will continue effective practices from a Sophomore Year Initiative including: an early warning system, major fairs (emphasizing STEM); and student long range academic planning.
As a result, PTS³ will: increase the number of Hispanic and low-income students who graduate with STEM degrees; develop and enhance articulation between 2 and 4 year institutions; and support student-centered program services and activities that lead to improved student outcomes in STEM.
Program approaches include high impact practices and effective strategies. The research design will provide evidence of promising practices in achieving the goals/objectives of the project. PTS³ collaborates between Lehman College, Bronx Community College and Hostos Community College.
