students began their stay by touring the demonstrations of companies like Huawei, National Instruments, Toshiba, Nokia, Intel, Macerc and Technion in the conference hall, while receiving career and professional advice from corporate representatives.
Project Synergy began as a result of the enrollment demands at all three educational institutions, i.e., SUHSD, SCCD, and SDSU.
SWC annually enrolls approximately 55% of all high school graduates from SUHSD. More specifically, enrollment projections indicate that the number of full time equivalent students (FTES) will increase by 12,107 in year 2010.
The enrollment demands at SDSU equal that of SUHSD and SWC.
In summary, the enrollment demands of each educational institution, i.e., SUHSD, SCCD, and SDSU clearly identify a need for increasing access to higher education in the southern region of San Diego County.
The school-to-career connection between SUHSD, SWC, and practical two-plus-two (2+2) articulation agreements are long-standing.
At the announcement of the Compact for Success, Edward Brand, Superintendent of SUHSD; Michael Ellis, of Metabolife International; and I each commented on the Compact: As reported in La Presa San Diego, May 17, 2001:
SDSU will assist SUHSD teachers to improve teacher preparation, provide academic tutoring and advising, and will assist SUHSD in implementing district-wide reforms.
