Dear Faculty Mentors and Campus Leads,
We’re thrilled to introduce you to the SOAR portal, a groundbreaking platform designed to elevate the educational experience for students with disabilities in STEM fields. SOAR isn’t just a data collection tool; it’s a dynamic communication channel that empowers us to understand student needs better and to work collaboratively toward achieving our alliance’s goals.
Why is your engagement with SOAR so crucial? First, it provides you with invaluable insights into the unique challenges and opportunities that our students face. This real-time data allows you to tailor your mentorship and programs more effectively. Second, your active participation encourages students to share their own experiences, creating a feedback loop that enriches our collective understanding and fosters a sense of community.
We urge you to not only utilize the SOAR portal yourselves but also to encourage your students to participate. The more comprehensive our data, the more impactful our collective efforts will be in enhancing educational outcomes and career transitions for students with disabilities in STEM.
Remember, SOAR is more than a portal; it’s our shared path to achieving collective impact. By using it actively, you’re contributing to a transformative initiative that has the potential to change lives for the better.
Thank you for your commitment to STEM students!
