Syracuse University School of Education: SUmmer College In The City

Syracuse University School of Education: SUmmer College In The City

Syracuse University’s School of Education collaborated with the New York City Department of Education and the High School for Leadership and Public Service in Manhattan to offer SUmmer College in the City to promising high school juniors  to enhance their abilities and motivation to attend college. The evaluation activities over the course of two years were designed to provide a coherent description of program operation, identify promising practices, guide continuous program improvement efforts, and describe impact of the program and progress toward the project’s goals. Evaluation methods and activities included interviews with key informants, observations, student focus groups and surveys and analysis of student data.
