A Bridge to Academic Excellence’s mission is to provide tutoring and mentoring for middle/high school students in the Baltimore Metro area. Goals
Because of the interdisciplinary nature of ABAE, students are drawn from programs in pharmacy, law, medicine, physical therapy, and dentistry to serve as tutors. This unique opportunity to give back to the community also provides the tutors the chance to learn more about their own profession and the professions of the other tutors with whom they work and to meet pharmacy faculty and practitioners. ABAE goals are:
To plan, coordinate, and implement activities to enhance the interest in and success rate of applicants in the health professions, law and social work
To have professional school students serve as tutors and mentors to high school students
To reward middle/high school students for producing successful learning outcomes
To unite professional school students and student organizations on the University's campus to work together in teams as they will as professionals
Parents and students: please arrive on time to ABAE!
Please plan to arrive no later than 9:50 am in order to be respectful to the tutors who have arrived on time and to avoid being disruptive to others. As a reminder, the program runs from 10am to 12pm, with breakfast served at 9:45am. Thank you for your continued attendance and support of ABAE, and for you cooperation in making ABAE a success!
