The Colin Powell School offers an “onboarding” course for freshmen and new transfer students to Bridges to Success: Leadership and the Social Sciences. The course was created to prepare students to turn their college experience into academic, personal, and professional success. The course covers three topics; an introduction to the social sciences, the essential skills and tools for successfully navigating college and career, the exploration of student power and the history of student activism at CCNY. It’s a large lecture class with weekly discussion sections.
CCNY is in need of instructors for two discussion sections of the course for this fall. The class meets once a week—Mondays, 3:30-6:15. The plenary/lecture portion runs from 3:30-4:45, and then all of the discussion sections meet immediately after plenaries from 5-6:15. The sections are capped at 20 students. Discussion section leaders are paid for 32 adjunct hours.
The course’s director is Cynthia Gutierrez, the Manager of Mentoring and Alumni Relations at the Colin Powell School. Anyone interested should be in touch with Cynthia at firstname.lastname@example.org.
