About Gateway Print Page


Title V STEM Gateway Grant

The mission of the Gateway grant is to serve Glendale College’s basic skills students by developing a comprehensive and holistic program for basic skills instruction and services. Excellent programs and projects serving basic skills students already exist at GCC, but they often operate independently of one another. Research has shown that, in the main, those who need these services most are least likely to find them on their own. The solution is to link curriculum, ancillary instruction, and services directly in a clear and comprehensive program.

Why develop a basic skills program under a STEM grant? What do basic skills have to do with STEM? The reality is that STEM majors and careers are possible only for those basic skills students who successfully complete their developmental coursework. Thus, the Gateway Project’s overarching goal is to facilitate students’ efficient progress from developmental courses to transferable courses, from community college to university, and ultimately to degree completion.

Michael Ritterbrown and Cathy Durham direct the five-year, $4.3 million Gateway project. Yeranui Barsegyan is the STEM Services Developer and Leticia Estrada the Grants Specialist for both Gateway and GAUSS.
