ACCEL Student Support Update

Tue, 2 August, 2016 at 10:58 am
While the summer is traditionally a slow period at Canada, ACCEL has been busy collaborating with faculty and staff to identify new ways to support students on and off campus.  Current projects in development include preparing a welcoming space on Floor 2 of Building 9 to house the Dream Center, slated to open in Fall 2016, that will provide immigrant students with college and community resources.  Due to the success of the Math Jam, Physics Jam and Word Jam, a new jam program dedicated to Career Skills is currently being drafted by the Business, Design and Workforce Division with the support of ACCEL.  Tentatively, a pilot version will be offered on-campus in October 2016 with the goal of bringing it to Menlo Park in the future to strengthen community outreach.  Speaking of which, ACCEL will be meeting with several partners at Puente de la Costa Sur in Pescadero later this month to explore how Canada can promote our programs and services to the local populations along the coast.
