Community College Successful Intervention Programs: ATOMS, RSI and Vocational Gender Equity.
Remsberg, Judy; Buie, Wendy
The Mission Statement of Thomas Nelson Community College contains the statement, "As a community-based institution, TNCC strives to be responsive to the educational and skill needs of area businesses, industries, and government agencies." This paper describes three programs initiated to support this aspect of the college mission. Adventures in Technology = Options in Math and Science and The Regional Summer Math and Science Institute promote science, math, engineering, and technology interest at the middle school level and target average achievers who frequently opt out of the higher levels of high school math and science courses. Vocational Gender Equity's initial goal was to establish and operate a regional vocational sex equity center on campus serving single parents and displaced homemakers to promote educational and career opportunities, and to inform all students of their rights to choices from the full career spectrum and to the best education possible.
