Cost of Jump Start Programs

Posted By Angie Gora, Tuesday, September 12, 2017

Hello Everyone,

I am in the infancy stages of developing an early start program at Bemidji State University.  We are a rural campus in an economically repressed region.   However, I am looking at offering first-year, residential students who are ready an opportunity to begin their college career during the late summer before their first fall semester.  Right now, I am in the process of comparing prices.  I noticed a lot of bridge programs are free for students.  This program that I am developing would be more for high achieving students who just want to get a jump on college.  It would be four-weeks: campus housing, meals, tech fees, four credit hours (tuition/fees), evening programs, mentors, excursions, etc. for $3200.  Not included: personal expenses, text books, insurance.  If you offer an early start program of similar nature, would you be willing to share your fee structure?

Leaving Columbia | Future contact information

Posted By John Robichaux, Monday, September 11, 2017

Dear NAASS Colleagues,


It is with a mix of sadness and gratitude that I write to announce my departure from Columbia University. A recent change in University practice regarding senior officers working remotely means that my position is one of more than a dozen being relocated to the New York area. As many of you know, my wife and I remain committed to living in the Bay Area for family reasons. As such, Columbia and I have agreed to part ways amicably at the end of September. While I am disappointed to be leaving the strong global team of colleagues and the new unit and programs we helped create during my time with the University, I am also grateful to Columbia for their support and enthusiasm for our work together over the past two years. In our time together, we have not only affected significant new program development, but brought about another large jump in growth while tightening academic standards and greatly expanding financial access to programs in my broad portfolio—including increasing financial aid across the programs by 1500% in two years. We also took critical steps to enhance Columbia’s global footprint within International Education and initial steps to place the University at the forefront of educational access for what we hope will be years to come, including designing a Center for Educational Access and substantial expansions in the University’s Girls in STEM and Women in Leadership initiatives.

For my part, I now turn to the next adventure. Beginning October 1, I return to my prior life of consulting for universities and philanthropic organizations internationally on a range of topics related to educational and philanthropic innovation for broad social impact.

Finally, let me say what a pleasure it has been to be part of NAASS for these many years. As many of you know, I have had the privilege of having Summer, Pre-College, and International Education programs as part of my larger portfolios for more than two decades, helping steer some of the most exciting and innovative programs in those fields at Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, and Brown. During this time, I have learned a great deal from so many of you, and have appreciated both your generosity and collegiality—in addition to your friendship outside the profession, in so many cases as well. Please continue to share this spirit with my replacement, as I know you will.

Do stay in touch. My personal email and phone will remain and +1 617.413.6707, and I can always be reached through my Harvard Scholars public profile as well. If I can ever be helpful to you or your teams, as a sounding board or otherwise, don’t hesitate to reach out. I remain at your service and that of the profession wherever I can be useful.


In deep gratitude for all you have done for me, the profession, and our students,






John Robichaux | Executive Director

Seeking suggestions for financial incentives for students' participation in summer bridge program

Posted By Anne Van Arsdall, Monday, September 11, 2017

One of the colleges at Colorado State University is exploring a summer bridge program for high school juniors to raise awareness of careers while increasing access to, and diversity within, the college and the field.

They are seeking a value add component, such as course credit or another financial incentive that will allow the participants to decrease time to graduation. One idea being explored is to offer a tuition discount/scholarship which students can apply to CSU after participation in the program. 

I am curious if anyone has experience with either of these types of incentives (credit for HS students or a scholarship to be applied later).  Also, if you have additional incentive ideas please share. 

Thank you!

Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.

Precollege successes

Posted By Meghan Cassidy M.Ed., Wednesday, August 30, 2017

I hope everyone's summer is wrapping up well! At Hampshire College we run both college and precollege summer programs. Our precollege programs concluded at the end of July and I've been spending some time reviewing our student and faculty feedback, as well as thinking about our goals for next year. That being said, I was interested in learning a bit more about other schools' precollege programs and the approximate number of students who matriculate to your institution as a (possible) result of participating in the precollege programs.

I'm hoping to put a more concentrated focus on our precollege programs in the future. I plan to work more with admissions to look at how the students who attend our precollege programs (and matriculate to Hampshire) are then retained. I'm thinking about different ways that we can measure the 'success' of our summer programs and think that there's much to be said about the return that an institution receives from putting more support and resources into precollege programs as a whole. Any information that you're able to share about your precollege students matriculating to your institution would be great. Thank you!

Is chasing STEM a mistake?

Posted By Angela Cason, Monday, July 31, 2017
Updated: Monday, July 31, 2017
Spending your summer in a pedagogical quandary? STEM courses may seem like a panacea, but there's a cost to chasing technology.  Read this argument on why teaching student to think like a robot may be the worst way to prepare them for future employment.
