MIMAUE 10th Anniversary Gala

MIMAUE 10th Anniversary Gala
Educators and interested parties,
You are cordially invited to the Maryland Institute for Minority Achievement and Urban Education (MIMAUE)’s 10th Anniversary Gala, which is to be held on May 17, 2012.

The Maryland Institute for Minority Achievement and Urban Education is an academic association, an action-oriented collaborative, and an educational center. Its central goals are the improvement of minority achievement, the elimination of the achievement gap, and the improvement and reform of urban education. The Institute seeks to develop and disseminate basic knowledge and to generate and apply research and expert knowledge to local needs and concerns. It serves as a hub for research and interchange on major questions regarding urban education, minority and majority student learning, policy matters, organizational development, leadership and professional development, and effective school reform, among others. It works in concert with local partners to construct mutually productive efforts to help solve problems and meet urban education challenges. It involves local schools and school systems, post-secondary institutional partners, state and national organizations, and others whose interest and expertise may serve the mission of the Institute and its members.

In the ten years that we have been in existence, we have:

* Implemented the College Awareness Project (CAP), which offered college preparation sessions for 155 students during the school year,summer sessions, and college tours for students attending Charles Carroll Middle School in Prince George’s County. 89%, of a sample of student participants, strongly agree/agree that they know a lot about what they need to do to apply for college.

* Implemented the College Awareness throughout Career Exploration (CACE), a unique program designed to provide a platform for students to make the connection between college attendance and career choice. CACE participants have been polled and "strongly agree" on the importance of college, college preparation, and knowledge of financial aid opportunities. To date, 15 CACE students, 50% of current students, have been accepted to a college or university. The program has also had a 100% retention rate

* Created a Statewide College Preparation Conference for nearly 120 high school seniors attending school in the Maryland counties of Prince George’s, Baltimore, Wicomico, Garrett, Allegany and Somerset. Out of these 120 students, 85 students completed and submitted a college application during the conference. In addition, through this overnight experience, students received about 20 hours of programming and support.

* Established graduate-level courses aimed at exposing and providing culturally relevant teaching strategies to teachers, which have potentially impacted upwards of 5,000 students.

* Initiated a conference, "Helping Mathematics Teachers Become Culturally Relevant Educators: New
Tools for a New Generation," in March 2010, which 95 teachers and district staff attended the program. The program has the potential to impact over 7,000 K-12 students. 93% of teachers surveyed reported their knowledge of teaching by incorporating a students’ culture had increased.

* Sponsoring, in collaboration with the National Science Foundation, a continuation of the "Helping Mathematics Teachers Become Culturally Relevant Educators: New Tools for a New Generation" conference for March 2012.

Interested parties, please contact the addresses on the flier.

Best Regards,
Johnthan Speed

High school students' career decision-making process: Consequences for choice implementation in higher education [An article from: Journal of Vocational Behavior]
This digital document is a journal article from Journal of Vocational Behavior, published by Elsevier in 2007. The article is delivered in HTML format and is available in your Amazon.com Media Library immediately after purchase. You can view it with any web browser.

This study investigated consequences of high school students’ career decision-making process for choice implementation in higher education. A sample of adolescents participated at the end of Grade 12 and was followed during the first and second year in higher education. Linear and logistic regression analyses revealed that students’ coping with career decisional tasks at the end of Grade 12 significantly contributed to the several aspects of early choice implementation (i.e., choice actualization, academic adjustment, commitment to the chosen study) during the first trimester in higher education. The importance of these aspects of early choice implementation is demonstrated through their relationship with academic achievement during the first year in higher education.
