Abstract:

Selected incoming freshmen at risk students were admitted to the Engineering and Science Summer Research Program with the intent of introducing these students to the classroom and research environment at Vanderbilt University, in addition to presenting to them the wide range of professional opportunities available. Participants also included high school teachers and counselors previous program participants. The program included workshops, courses, computer skills, field trips, and research projects designed to enhance the probability of academic success. The program appears to have been successful in increasing the academic performance of this group of at risk students.
