Effective Practices for Nontraditional Students


Middle Georgia Technical College, STEM Equity in Aviation Program

The Aviation Program the at Middle Georgia Technical College has instituted a number of practices to ensure the success of female students in the program. Since math is a vital component of the program that have contextualized the math support program to be gender equal and involved examples specific to aviation. They have added Success Coaching for new students and instituted cohort scheduling and a college success course. Female retention has increased as a result of their efforts. Project staff feel that engagement is the key to their success.
