Bobcat University is the scaled-up version of Rogers University, a pilot program created in 2010 by MICA in partnership with the Marshalltown Community School District (MCSD), that was designed to combat summer learning loss. Bobcat University is a full-day, four week program that blends academic learning in the morning with hands-on enrichment activities that marshal the resources of the community in the afternoon. MCSD invites students in kindergarten through 3rd grade who can benefit the most from additional academic support, but students must commit to attend the full program to participate. Individualized plans for each of the invited students focus on building their reading and math skills through small group instruction led by a licensed teacher. Students learn about the community and its resources through enrichment activities, they develop new knowledge and skills, and contextualize their academic work. These enrichment activities are provided in collaboration with community partners such as YMCA/YWCA, ISU Extension, SATUCI, and Marshalltown Public Library. Students receive breakfast, lunch, and a snack, and transportation is provided when needed. Bobcat University operates at all six elementary schools.
