Report Title
MSC CAMAC Amig@s 2017-2018
Sponsoring Department
Memorial Student Center
Brief Description
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. A peer mentoring program pairs current MSC CAMAC members with first-year and/or first-generation Latina/o students, and has established four core pillars; academics, identity, culture and legacy. Benefits to becoming an MSC CAMAC Amig@s mentor includes developing interpersonal relationship, time management skills, and gaining leadership experience. Mentees benefit from one on one meetings with their mentors, colegas (Texas A&M faculty or staff), and are given opportunities to develop transferable skills, like communication and time management skills. The attached report summarizes the results of five assessments given to both mentees and mentors regarding their training and experience with the program during different points of time during the 2017-2018 academic year.
