How to know each of your college students

As the Portfolio Director of Dell Scholars Program, I know the key to success in helping our Dell Scholars graduate from college depends on our ability to know each and every student. To know who they are. To know when they need our help. To know when to intervene. As a small team of four people, this hasn’t always been easy. So how have we managed to get four times the national graduation rate for our Dell Scholars, compared to the same socioeconomic group? The simple answer: GradSnapp.

Building the road to college completion

Today we announced our 13th class of Dell Scholars who will join the other more than 3,000 scholars working towards their college degrees. It is an exciting time of year for us as we get to know another 350 students from across the country.

Dell Scholars Program: Redefining college ready

In our years of supporting students as they pursue college degrees, we’ve maintained a realistic view, through hands-on experience, of what it takes for our scholars to prepare for- and eventually complete- college, and we’ve designed our program to meet their needs. Students become Dell Scholars today. And so, our team begins supporting each student the moment he or she is accepted into the program.
