Wilhelm and Norris will be working in partnership with the Dallas County Community College District to create a dual-enrollment recruitment program that prepares student scholars for dual degrees in Mathematics and Educational Studies at SMU.

The project includes collaboration with staff from the Budd Center, a unit of SMU’s Simmons School that brings West Dallas nonprofits and schools together to provide neighborhood children the educational, social and emotional tools they need to break the cycle of poverty.
