KSU 1101 for Adult Learners is taught by R. Todd Powell, Assistant Director of Adult Learner Programs. In Mr. Powell’s course, students are taught college survival skills and they are challenged to think critically, develop reasoning abilities, and express themselves in both oral and written forms. Involving nontraditional students within the campus community is an important part of the goals and mission of Adult Learner Programs.
This course will be taught as a learning community. This course will help be connected to learning support math and will focus on college readiness concepts for adult learner and returning students. We will prepare students for the rigorous degree programs, KSU has to offer.
