Title: DREAMS Program: Supporting Students Academically At-risk

Date: February 9, 2021 at 1:00pm ET

Presenters: Drs. Regina Gavin Williams and Taheera Blount (and two graduate assistants from the Program)


Discussing, REalizing, and Achieving Maximum Success (D.R.E.A.M.S.) was a five-week college and career readiness and drop-out prevention program for high school students who repeated the 9th grade at least once. The presenters will share the components and outcomes of the program, and walk through the curriculum, which was designed to support academic development, career aspirations, post-secondary expectations, and enhance decision-making skills to work towards building participants' college and career readiness self-efficacy.

Mid-program Review

This spring's Mid-program Review is for students applying for Practicum in the summer or fall of 2021.

Students must complete the Mid-program Review before they can be placed in Practicum. This review time is only for students who are in Pre-practicum this spring semester and will take Practicum either this summer or next fall.  Students taking Pre-practicum in the summer will complete their Mid-program Review in the summer.

The review will consist of an oral examination of the student’s work. During this 15-minute review, the faculty and student will discuss the student’s field placement plans. 

The reviews are scheduled for March 1-5.

Final Defense

Attention students graduating this spring and summer: Please sign up for an appointment time for your final defense. The defense is a mock-interview and is intended to sharpen your job seeking and interviewing skills. 

We will conduct your defense using WebEX.  You will need to sign up for an appointment time HERE.  A faculty member will send you a WebEX invitation sometime before the defense is to take place, but after you have scheduled an appointment.  

Defenses for spring and summer graduates are scheduled for April 5-9.  Summer graduates need to schedule their defense this spring; defenses are not held during the summer break.


North Carolina Central University is switching to a new assessment system (Watermark/Taskstream).  The School of Education will no longer use Foliotek.  We will make information about this new system available as things progress.  For now, you do not need to create or renew a Foliotek account.  You will not need to upload any more documents into the Foliotek system.  Please be assured that faculty will still have access to what you have already uploaded in Foliotek.
