PROFESSORS & PATHWAYS LITERACY WORKSHOPS
Professors & Pathways (P&P) is a multi-year academic program housed in Purdue University Fort Wayne’s University Research and Innovation. Professors & Pathways’ focus is two-fold:
- Support students' academic preparation for college/university by cultivating students' academic, functional, and digital literacy skills.
- Provide education on the financial aspects of higher education (not just about tuition and scholarships, but also the basics of financial management).
We set you up for success. P&P simulates and prepares you for the college experience by providing you an opportunity to take year-round college courses that have been modified to meet the learning needs of high schoolers and pre-college individuals. As professors, we have seen many college students succeed and fail during their freshman year. We will guide you toward success before you officially become a college student.
We want you to feel at home on a college campus. The faculty/professors mentor you on how to participate in university culture and meet the academic and social expectations of a college classroom.
We want to help lessen your worry about finances. We provide consistent assistance in the areas of financial literacy, financial aid, and scholarship search.
We want you to know everyone cares and is involved in your education. The professors collaborate with parents, guardians, and your other mentors to help them understand the financial and cultural demands of higher education.
