Early Bridge Program at Pitt-Greensburg
Since 2017, the Bridge program and its summer component, Early Bridge, have served at-risk students admitted conditionally to Pitt-Greensburg by offering support services to promote academic success. For the past four years, these students have completed a one-week intensive summer program prior to the start of the fall semester. However, low persistence/retention, good standing, graduation, and graduate-school enrollment rates indicate a strong need for more robust support. The grant funding will support the development of preparatory courses in Algebra and Composition comparable to 1.5-credit courses, which will be offered over a period of four weeks beginning in July 2021.
