Work with Dr. Bethanie Tucker to understand how college students from poverty are underresourced not only financially but also cognitively, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. To be successful in college, these students must develop an understanding of the “hidden rules” of academia, expand their language abilities, learn persistence skills, and develop support systems and relationships with role models. Come to learn how interactions with college personnel, curriculum designs, and instructional strategies can support these students’ personal growth and the ability to make a successful transition.
Bethanie H.Tucker, Ed.D.

Dr. Tucker of Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina, has been a professional educator since 1972. She has served as a classroom teacher, a resource teacher, a teacher of gifted students, and is currently a professor of education at Averett University in Danville, VA. Dr. Tucker holds three academic degrees, all in education: a B.S. from Averett College and an M.S. and Ed.D. from the University of Virginia, Charlottesville.

RSVP to by January 27. Adjunct faculty will be paid a $25 stipend for participating.
