0.0 stars

The Academic Success Center's embedded tutoring program provides equitable access to academic support by aligning support between the instructor, the tutor, and the course content. Embedded tutors provide support to students enrolled in gateway courses such as MATH 1314 College Algebra, CHEM 1411 General Chemistry I, MATH 1420 Calculus, and more. The Academic Success Center identifies potential equity gaps in end-of-course outcomes and provides scaffolded and aligned academic support using in- and out-of-class tutoring. Tutors provide in-class support during classroom practice and activities, particularly in active learning classrooms. Tutors provide out-of-class support in study groups, one-on-one tutoring sessions, and review sessions. Tutoring services are located in a centralized tutoring and mentoring center inside the campus library to provide access to connect students to different support services. All tutoring is also available online.

Coordinated Care Network

0.0 stars

SHSU is a partner of Navigate EAB and utilizes this technology as our primary student success management system. The Coordinated Care Network is a function of Navigate EAB and has been employed at SHSU as a retention-based partnership across several divisions. The Coordinated Care Network supports student success by bridging institutional efforts in receiving and triaging student alerts and referrals through Campus Connect (Navigate EAB). When faculty or staff issue an alert or referral, Campus Connect is configured to enact a chain of technology driven events to connect the student with the expert department who then provides appropriate intervention. Additionally, we target high-needs students to submit an alert or referral on themselves to receive assistance with their particular need(s). Overall, students who are alerted through the Coordinated Care Network and/or self-alert process experience positive gains in credit completion, term GPA outcomes, and persistence rates.

DELIVERY FORMAT: The program has a hybrid format.

PROGRAM SCALE: Medium-scale (reaches between 10 and 25 percent of its target population)

0.0 stars

Historically, Hispanic and African American men have lower retention and graduation rates across the United States. To counter the aforementioned – in 2000, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) approved the Closing the Gaps: The Texas Higher Education Plan in order to increase minority retention and graduation rates in higher education institutions. In 2010, in support of the initiative, Sam Houston State University (SHSU) established the “Sam Houston Establishing Leadership In and Through Education (ELITE),” the university’s minority male success program. ELITE strives to increase student success by fostering intentional community and meaningful campus engagement. The program components of ELITE include Brotherhood, Community Building, Leadership Development, and Service. This is accomplished through weekly peer mentoring, social events, guest speaker series, and volunteer service projects.

DELIVERY FORMAT: The program is in-person only.

PROGRAM SCALE: Small-scale (reaches fewer than 10 percent of its target population)

APPROXIMATE PARTICIPANTS SERVED IN 2021-22: 203

HOW TO ENROLL: To enroll, students complete an interest form, which is then followed by meeting with a full-time program staff member for an interview. After the interview, participants review and complete the participation agreement, which completes the enrollment process.

EVALUATION STATUS: Data related to program outcomes are currently being internally collected

DEPARTMENT(S) OVERSEEING PROGRAM: The program is overseen by First Gen Initiatives, within the Division of Academic Affairs.

University (UNIV) 1101: Learning Frameworks Peer Mentoring
Read the Fine Print
Some Rights Reserved
Rating
0.0 stars

All UNIV 1101: Learning Frameworks courses include an embedded peer mentor. This one-hour class meets two times per week: The first day each week the instructor and peer mentor are present, and students learn about science-based learning strategies, time management, personal strengths, career preparation, and resource use for academic and personal success. Peer mentors serve as role models and participate in the learning process on the first day of class each week. The second day instructors are not present by design to give students time to work on the assignment due that second day with other classmates and with support from the peer mentor. The peer mentor role in the second class day is to help with assignment questions, to help you make sense of academic and time management challenges from a peer mentor student perspective, and to recommend and assist students in using additional campus resources (tutors, professors, financial aid specialists, etc.) as students apply science-based learning strategies in pursuit of academic success in all of your classes. The peer mentor holds student office hours outside of class time similar to but at different times than the instructor's office hours. This allows for more and varied options for students to get advice on how to best apply topics discussed in the course, to assist in making an appropriate tutor appt. in a class they want support for, or to get advice on other campus resources.

DELIVERY FORMAT: The program is in-person only.

PROGRAM SCALE: Medium-scale (reaches between 10 and 25 percent of its target population)
