5 Approaches to increase the number of students in Mathematics and Science Teacher Preparation Programs: Outreach & Recruitment Strategies Partnership Development Financial Aid Support Advertising & Website Development

6 Outreach/Recruitment StrategiesPartnership Development Target Liberal Studies studentsEstablish links with community colleges for Foundational Level Credential for information exchange and outreach efforts geared towards enhancing the pipeline of Recruit students in majors math and science teachers with a strong math and/or science emphasis to Teacher Education Establish partnerships with service are Programsschools to offer mathematics and science teaching internships Establish links with campus-based clubs and organizations to promoteExplore on and off-campus partnerships/ Math and science teacher preparation collaboratives for the purpose of recruiting and Programssupporting math and science teacher candidates Recruit undeclared majors/ students to math and science teacher preparation programs Establish links with high school Future Teacher Programs Sponsor a Math and Science Teachers of Tomorrow Conference for High School and community College students Target mathematics and science majors to teacher education programs

7 Financial Aid Support Advertising Increase access to financial aidDevelop of a comprehensive Mathematics opportunities through informationand Science Teacher Education Public Service sessions, FAFSA-on-the-Weband advertising campaign workshops and website support Develop of a website for prospective Increase scholarship opportunitiesstudents focusing on education and careers in for math and science teacher candidatesteaching mathematics and science, test preparation support and advising

8 Recruit Students in Majors with a Strong Mathematics and/or Science Emphasis Identify students majoring in Accounting, Business, Agricultural Studies, Economics, Social Sciences and Physical Education Direct outreach services towards mathematics and science teaching careers Organize recruitment activities

9 Establish Links with Campus-based Clubs and Organizations to Promote Mathematics and Science Teaching Outreach to campus-based student clubs, fraternities and sororities: –Student California Teacher Association (SCTA) –Mathematics Club –Science Club Outreach to diverse groups: –Movimiento Estudantil Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA) –California Mini-corps –Bilingual Education Student Organization (BESO) –Local student chapter of the California Association of Bilingual Education (CABE/BECCA) –League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC)

10 Recruit Undeclared Majors to Mathematics and Science Teacher Preparation Programs Target undeclared majors by providing: Outreach activities that highlight math and science teaching Advising by Single Subject Credential Program Coordinators and mathematics and science faculty Information on financial aid incentives and examination preparation support

13 Recruit Mathematics and Science Majors to Teacher Education Programs Identify mathematics and science majors who haven’t considered teaching as a career option Target students with a “B” or better in course work Coordinate provision of information on teacher education programs, careers in teaching, financial aid incentives and CSET examination preparation support opportunities

14 Partnership Development Community College collaborative for information exchange and outreach efforts for enhancing the pipeline of math and science teachers Service Area Schools to offer mathematics and science teaching internships Campus Outreach Services to train recruiters to present math and science teacher education/career options: Campus Career Services to provide: –career advising to teacher candidates –career faire collaboration (to support teacher recruitment event) Other collaboratives that support mathematics and science teacher recruitment efforts

15 Financial Aid Support to Mathematics and Science Teacher Candidates Promote financial aid opportunities through: -General information sessions/workshops -FAFSA-on-the-Web Workshops -Website advertising -Informational brochures in the Teacher Recruitment & Retention Office Increase scholarship opportunities: -Collaborate with campus scholarship office to increase access to teacher education scholarships -Explore outside scholarship opportunities Ex: Noche de Beccas, a community-based Hispanic scholarship organization will support the MSTI Project by awarding Future Teacher Scholarships to Math and Science Teacher Candidates

16 Advertising Professional Publications: Develop a comprehensive Teacher Education Advertising Campaign focusing on careers in Mathematics and science teaching Collaborate with University communications and outreach experts to develop professional publications and informational resources that highlight math and science teacher education programs and careers in teaching Work with outreach staff to distribute brochures at recruitment events and site visits to service area high schools and community colleges

17 Advertising Public Service Advertising Campaign: Develop PSA’s with local radio stations/cable channels to promote math and science programs/careers in teaching and contact information Create announcements for regional newspapers to run articles promoting math and science programs/careers in teaching, financial aid incentives, support services and contact information Highlight the achievements of CSU Stanislaus mathematics and science teacher candidates who have succeeded despite significant hardships to appeal to prospective students
