The GLBT Resource Center Mentorship program offers support and guidance to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning students (LGBTQ) within Texas A&M University. In 2016, this program was awarded a Division of Student Affairs College Completion Grant, intending to sharpen its focus on retention, persistence, and graduation of students involved in the program. By connecting these students with a mentor who is like them, the Mentorship program proposes that its student participants will gain efficacy in persisting to graduation at Texas A&M University.

MSC CAMAC Amig@s 2016-2017

In 2016, MSC CAMAC was awarded a Division of Student Affairs College Completion Grant to fund two featured programs. Those programs include the current and growing Mi Casa es Su Casa, which provides a support system for Hispanic students through interaction with Hispanic professors as the latter prepares a home cooked meal in their home, and a new initiative, MSC CAMAC Amig@s. This new initiative is a mentoring program that pairs current MSC CAMAC members with first-year and/or first-generation Latina/o students, with the hope that participants will become engaged with MSC CAMAC and other programs/organizations/services on campus. MSC CAMAC Amig@s assists students in acclimating to campus life, becoming involved, and helps them find a home away from home. The grant money funds services such as retreats and trainings, and the MSC CAMAC advisor and leaders believe that involvement in the program will positively impact participants’ persistence to their second year of college and beyond to graduation. The attached assessment report summarizes assessments provided to participants attending the three Gatherings offered in the spring semester, which involved attendance at the theatrical & chorale performance, Conspirare: Considering Mathew Shepard, the musical film Chico & Rita and a résumé writing workshop and the year end reflection exercise.

Division of Student Affairs Aggies RISE Student Employee Assessment Spring 2016

In 2012,based on the University of Iowa's GROW (Guided Reflection on Work) program, the TAMU Division of Student Affairs (DSA) created Aggies RISE (Reflecting and Integrating Student Employment) to assess what students were learning from their student worker positions within the DSA. In 2012-2013 the Aggies RISE committee developed a pre- and post-survey to measure these identified outcomes. In addition, supervisors volunteered that year to be part of the pilot project to have conversations with their student workers using a structured interview protocol. The purpose was to have students reflect on how their on-the-job learning may have an impact on their academics and career choices.In 2016,
Aggies RISE wanted to continue assessing the student employees throughout the Division to look at these common learning outcomes, as well as opportunities for student employees to reflect on their employment, connections between students’ work and the classroom or their future careers, and how student employment positions fit the criteria for being considered a high impact practice. However the 2015-2016 assessment included only one survey sent out near the end of the 2015-2016 academic year to student employees with the DSA. The attached report summarizes the results of that survey.
