Rose State College was recognized earlier this month with the Exemplary Program Award by the Oklahoma Association for Developmental Education (OKADE), the second consecutive year that the Rose State College has received this award. Programs were nominated through the OKADE, and awarded during their annual conference on November 1, 2019.
“We’re extremely proud of our CLICK program, and all of the professors and staff contributing to the program,” said Toni Castillo, Dean of the Humanities Division at Rose State College. “Unfortunately, many students come to college unprepared. Our CLICK team provides the support needed for our students to succeed and to finish their degree.”
Developmental courses are designed for students unprepared for the academic rigor of college courses and look to help students make up the gap. Data indicates that 68% of community college students and 40% of students at public four-year colleges have to take at least one remedial-level course.
The CLICK team at Rose State College gives aid to students enrolled in a developmental course, with the motto “Fulfill the Promise of Your Potential.” The CLICK team aid students in the areas of English, Math, Reading, and College and Life Strategies, with professors from each of these disciplines contributing to the program. Students receive specialized coaching, personalized advising and degree planning, hands-on instruction with campus learning resources, and more as professors provide individual and purposeful attention to each student. Students in the program are required to attend at least one lab each week, with the option to participate in more. After completing one semester in the CLICK program, students may visit labs or receive coaching for the rest of their time at Rose State College.
