In January, our very own president, Kim Cassidy, attended the White House’s Summit on College Access. This week, the White House announces another summit on college access for December 6th of this year in hopes to build on the work made at the previous summit. The focus for this summit will be on “building sustainable collaborations in communities with strong K-12 and higher education partnerships to encourage college going, and supporting colleges to work together to dramatically improve persistence and increase college completion, especially for first generation, low-income, and underrepresented students.”
As Bryn Mawr continues to be leaders in college access, the process should not only be on admitting underrepresented students, but building community cohorts that will guide and support our students seeing them through to graduation.Comments

Some of our excited admissions counselors recently came back from a wonderful time at the PACAC Summer Institute hosted at Bucknell University, PA. They are coming back not only with great memories, but also prepared for the new applicants who will be applying this fall to Bryn Mawr College!Comments
We will be the leaders in the room, but we are not there purely to impart our knowledge and “teach,” but also to learn and explore with the younger students.
This was taken from the syllabus of one of the most recent Praxis programs at Bryn Mawr College. If you haven’t heard, Praxis is just one part of Bryn Mawr’s drive to get students hands on experience through service learning or experiential learning. Read through this syllabus and let us know what you think!Comments
