Mark Schelske is serving as a consultant on how activities of the project can best contribute to helping community college students matriculate to four-year institutions. Mark has nearly 30 years of experience with students whose high school experiences and college preparation have under-prepared them for the rigors of postsecondary study. Since 1988, he has served as the TRiO Faculty Advisor for St. Olaf’s federal TRiO grants, and he has been instrumental in the design of several model college preparation and retention programs sponsored by the college.
