Inclusive Teaching and Revised On Campus Ramps (InTRO) is a priority within KCIE.
With this priority we seek to provide students taking entry-level science and math courses with clearer entry points to those disciplines and guidance to potential careers. This work is in collaboration with the faculty of the science division.
Working closely with the other members of the Learning Commons Center, Dr. Rachel Love, Director of the new Science, Math, Business, and Economics (SMBE) Learning Centers, is in charge of coordinating the peer-led learning support for students taking introductory courses in these areas.
This work focuses on revising introductory science and math curriculum to integrate career guidance, emphasize shared concepts among disciplines and enhance academic support centers.
We will seek to provide students taking entry-level science and math courses with clearer entry points to those disciplines and guidance to potential careers.
