Affiliate Spotlight: Why Should College and University Affiliates Attend NCSSSMST Conferences?
Hegyes, Louis L.
NCSSSMST Journal, v14 n2 p29 Spr 2009
In this article, the author explains why he feels it is important for college and university affiliates to attend the National Consortium for Specialized Secondary Schools of Mathematics, Science and Technology (NCSSSMST) conferences. He states that those attending the conferences will have an opportunity to network with the NCSSSMST high school colleagues, present and participate in a variety of conference sessions, promote one's institution and programs at the Affiliate College Fair/Reception, and develop meaningful relationships that benefit both the high school and affiliate members. Another benefit is the increased awareness that some of the top high schools in the nation will have of one's college or university, which equates to more highly qualified applicants.
