SHARP aims to increase student retention through family and community engagement.
Open House: At the end of the semester, the SHARP students host an open house exhibit for the parents and community.
Progress: If possible, faculty mentors will meet with the parents to discuss the student’s progress.
Engagement: The SHARP Director and Coordinator, on an alternating basis, will meet with the parents of all incoming students as well as at the end of each semester of participation in the SHARP program. For parents that are off-island, these meetings will take place using Skype or Facetime.
