College of Mathematics, Natural Sciences & Technology Teaching Assistant Program/Science and Mathematics Skills-Development Program (SMS-DP) A program to increase retention and graduation rates of students in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) disciplines   The Science and Mathematics Skills-Development Program, a program funded by Title III, supports the incorporation of teaching assistants in several of the gatekeeper courses. The aim of the program supports the College's initiative to add 1 - to - 2 hours of student exposure to mathematics and science coursework. The goal of these additional sessions is to enhance students’ understanding of the course materials through an enhancement of their problem-solving skills and scientific reading and writing skills. Offered during the fall and spring semesters, these sessions are offered in small-class settings (averaging about 10 students, with an upper limit of 15 students) and are supervised by qualified instructors who have demonstrated their mastery of the material to be taught. Teaching Assistants (TA) for the SMS-DP program consist of a mix of adjunct professors, graduate students, and/or talented junior and senior undergraduate students. TAs receive compensation, enhanced teaching skills and are afforded opportunities for professional development.  For more information about this program, please contact your department chairperson or department designee, or Ms. Vanessa D. Nesbit.   Back to Support Programs Web Page Back to College Web Page
