Understanding Institutional Culture
Understanding the institutional culture of the colleges and the workplaces that transfer student may encounter in the future is critical to success. To address institutional factors that prevent successful or timely transfers, ULMSP mentors, staff and faculty describe the history, values, procedures and level of productivity at the university that govern student performance, promotion and success on the campus. During the summer bridge program, students are introduced to a wide variety of campus support services, potential professors and alumni. Living on campus while attending the program provides commuter students exposure to joys and challenges of campus life.
