Hennepin Technical College Professor Lisa Roney directs a summer enrichment program for low-income and first-generation students

To reach more learners, we strive to improve access to education for those who need it most. At Hennepin Technical College in Minnesota in the US, Lisa Roney directs a summer enrichment program for low-income and first generation high school students with the potential to succeed in higher education. Using Pearson’s ACCUPLACER/MyLab Foundational Skills, the program aims to bolster students’ academic progression and prepare them for careers.

93% of eligible program participants are currently enrolled in college

“Instead of losing academic skills during the summer break, our students are strengthening core academic skills that will enable them to succeed in their next academic year curriculum, to graduate high school on time, and to demonstrate readiness for college.” - Lisa Roney Director of TRiO – educational talent search, Hennepin Technical College
