Welcome, CEHD Graduate Students!

It's not the way we wanted to "meet" our newest CEHD Graduate Students, but we loved hearing their questions during today's Graduate Prelude Live Q&A session.

For the past two weeks, over 400 graduate students from across our programs have logged into Blackboard to complete our self-paced orientation program, Graduate Prelude. The goal of Prelude is to ensure that our grad students know all the tools and understand all of the expectations BEFORE the first day of class.

We are so proud of how many of them tuned in, engaged, and started making their own success!

Happy New Year to you! I am the cofounder of Hispanics for STEM, an organization that provides free online mentorships for low-income Hispanic and black students. We are strictly voluntary based. We were featured in El Tiempo Latino on October 26. http://eltiempolatino.com/news/2020/oct/26/hispanos-por-stem-ofrece-mentorias-gratuitas-en-ci/ On October 28, I contacted the George Mason Math Department seeking to build a partnership. The initial reaction from Ms. Joanne Jaunchen was very encouraging, but I did not receive a substantive response. I have learned that GM has signed an agreement with a RECENTLY CREATED 501.c.3 EDU TUTOR VA to carry out similar objectives to those of our organization. I noted also that the new organization includes former TJ Principal, Ms. Elizabeth Lodal who did not complete her tenure. Prior to the holiday break, I contacted the Chair of the Department requesting information about this agreement, in particular if it includes costs to GMU. I would appreciate to hear from you any time soon at your earliest convenience. Norma Margulies Cofounder Hispanics for STEM [email protected] 703-408-1335
