CSUB, Partner to Celebrate Early/Dual Enrollment Programs

More than 50 educators from California State University, Bakersfield, Kern High School District and other community partners will gather to discuss dual enrollment/early enrollent programs that help high school students earn college credits.

The event will be held from 9-11 a.m. Friday, Oct. 13, in the Icardo Center on the CSUB campus. CSUB President Horace Mitchell and Kern High School District Superintendent Dr. Bryon Schaefer will make welcoming remarks and sign an agreement of collaboration at the event.

CSUB offers various educational opportunities through its early enrollment program from the Office of Academic Programs. During the last year, for example, CSUB served more than 800 local area high school students in summer programs offered on the University campus such as REVS-UP and Enterprise College as well as courses taught on high school campus during the academic year such as Math, Geology, and Kinesiology.

There are plans underway to increase these course offerings to include a world religions course and business management courses. Students enrolled in these courses can earn high school AND college credit.

“The success of this program is attributable to the dedication and deep commitment of CSUB faculty and their high school counterparts who engage in regular professional development activities to promote student success,” said Dr. Vandana Kohli, associate dean of Undergraduate and Graduate Studies at CSUB. “In addition, the program receives extensive support from the administration at both the Kern High School District and CSUB.”
