April 27th, 2010 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Good Afternoon IMSA Alumni!

You are invited to join IMSA staff for a Community Learning Day on Thursday, April 29 with our special guest, Dr. Freeman Hrabowski, President, University of Maryland at Baltimore County. The topic of the day is: “Increasing the Number of STEM Leaders through the Retention of Gifted and Talented Students Who May Be At-Risk: What Are We Doing and Why It’s Everyone’s Job.”

IMSA Community Day
Thursday, April 29
8:00 A.M. – 3:00 P.M. CDT (for those attending in person)
8:30 A.M. – 11:30 A.M. CDT (for those participating remotely)

The focus of this Community Day is student retention. The day will provide us with the opportunity to consider questions directly relevant to sustaining a diverse environment and insuring the academic achievement and emotional well-being of our students. We are moving the conversation in the direction of creating conditions that maximize student success for all of our students, but particularly the success of our “at-risk” students.

In 2008, Dr. Hrabowski was named one of America’s Best Leaders by U.S. News & World Report, which in 2009 ranked UMBC the #1 “Up and Coming” university in the nation and fourth among all colleges and universities in the nation for commitment to undergraduate teaching. In 2009, Time magazine named him one of America’s 10 Best College Presidents.

All interested alumni are welcome to attend in person or to participate remotely. The program will be broadcast via uStream.tv. The program will also be videotaped. Listed below is the link to the “show” that has been created on uStream.tv for the live streaming of the April 29 Community Day segment: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/imsa-community-learning-day. Alumni wishing to participate via uStream are strongly encouraged to log onto the above link on Tuesday, April 27, 2010, between the hours of 9 am – 2 pm CDT.
