What We’re Fundraising For
Retention Program: MoveForward Program
The ECE Department recognizes that many of our students are successful in designing a fabric of resources and supportive systems such as professors, advisors and fellow classmates, but there are some who can truly benefit from additional assistance in excelling in our program. The Move Forward Program (MFP) was designed to provide individualized academic advising support to ECE students who are identified as at-risk as well as for students who are motivated to improve their academic performance. At the end of each semester, identified at-risk students are invited to participate in the MFP throughout the semester. The goal is to assist all ECE students who seek to improve their overall academic performance in their classes and to raise their GPA. The following are several components to the program:
• Academic Advising
• Faculty Support
• MFP Mentoring Initiative (MFP Mentoring)
Student Recruitment and Outreach: The ECE Department is active in bridging the community and the institution. Outreach services and programs are instrumental to the growth of our department. Within the past few years, the Advising Office has made it a priority to increase recruitment and outreach efforts and services to a variety of constituents.
Student Scholarships: The ECE Department works hard to provide students with scholarships.
