Goals

Objectives and Plans   

The fundamental goal of the Math Intensive Majors Scholarship (MIMS) Project is to increase the number of academically prepared underserved and/or financially disadvantaged student graduates, including women, minorities and disabled students, in the math, engineering or technology realms enrolled at Northwest Vista College (NVC), who transition to four-year institutions of higher education.  To achieve this objective, financial support, advising and mentoring, math discipline specific Student Development courses, mentoring and other academic interventions will be implemented in order to increase the target population’s preparation for the critical math courses in their major. 
 
Specific Goals: 
  1. To increase the participation of academically talented, underserved and/or financially disadvantaged and underrepresented students in the math, engineering or technology disciplines enrolled at NVC.
  2. To increase the academic success of academically talented, underserved and/or financially disadvantaged and underrepresented students majoring in math, engineering or technology, through scholarship support and the provision of support services that promote full-time enrollment and the attainment of an associate’s degree in math, engineering or technology disciplines, and transfer to baccalaureate degree programs in STEM disciplines.
  3. To increase retention of academically talented, underserved and/or financially disadvantaged students at NVC majoring in math, engineering or technology disciplines by providing intensive support services to enable cohort participants to complete advanced math courses (Pre-Calculus, Calculus I, II & III, etc.) with grades of B or better.
