Guidance Counselors from High Schools in Puerto Rico Tour NJIT Today

A group of 15 guidance counselors from high schools in Puerto Rico toured the university today beginning at 8:30 a.m., when a number of NJIT officials spoke to them about the university's pre-college programs and academic offerings. The counselors will see classrooms and research labs and talk to professors here about their fields of interest. The counselors will return home and tell their students about what they saw and heard at NJIT. The tour is sponsored by the School of Management (SOM). Barbara Tedesco, associate dean of SOM, said the tour could help attract top students from Puerto Rico to attend NJIT, and that diversity is part of the university’s strategic plan. “The counselors mentioned that many students in Puerto Rico have a particular interest in business, technology and management,” said Tedesco, “so this would be a great place for them to study.”
