NROC Ambassador Program

About the Program


The NROC Ambassador Program: Igniting the Power of Community

Teach. Lead. Learn.

NROC ambassadors represent member institutions committed to our collective efforts to improve student success on the path to college and career readiness. Ambassadors are willing to share hands-on experiences as teachers, leaders, and learners in adapting NROC resources to empower educators in the quest for new models that work. By sharing use cases, practical applications, efficacy data, recommendations, and lessons learned, Ambassadors broaden awareness of our work together. We invite you to join us by sharing your story and talents in webinars, conferences, workshops, social media, special member events, and more.  Click here to express your interest in participating.

BrendaPereaBrenda Perea, Instructional Design Project Manager, Colorado Community College System

Brenda has shared her experiences using NROC Math resources and EdReady to support the statewide Advanced Manufacturing TAACCCT grant in numerous ways.  Her work with the resources to support and credential technical math skills was featured in our July 2016 webinar.  She has also presented her work at STEMtech, WCET, Innovations, 2015 NROC Member Meeting, and at other national and regional conferences. In keeping with the spirit of our collaboration central to our project, she has generously shared resources and alignments she has developed to customize the materials to Colorado needs with her colleagues at other member colleges across the state.

Thank you, Brenda!
