Career READY

Career READY supports students who are interested in pursuing an experience in a field that typically does not offer pay. Through the Federal Work Study Experiment, students can be awarded pay amounts based on their unmet need. Students work at off campus locations in internships that align with their academic pursuits and they get paid as campus student workers for the semester of their internship experience. Students engage in all the same training and requirements of being an on campus student employee, and they benefit from their off campus training and requirements at their internship site. Students apply for the program via Handshake Experiences where we connect with their site supervisors about their internship experience and provide student and site evaluations. While this program is open to all students who are federal work study eligible, we encourage all students to check with student financial aid about the opportunity to become eligible. We have had 47 students successfully complete the program since spring of 2021, with over $279,000 awarded! Students share that this opportunity allowed them to focus more on their courses and internship experience because they didn’t have to get an extra job to make ends meet. Additionally, a large number of participants have been Education majors, who traditionally work full-time at clinical teaching sites without pay. This program has made a huge difference and impact on them so they could successfully complete their degrees without the stress of limited to no income, or taking out additional student loans.

Financial Literacy
Rating
0.0 stars

Financial Literacy at Texas A&M University- San Antonio takes a multi-pronged approach to educating and equipping students as well as the general community with knowledge and skills in personal finance and financial management. Housed within the Mays Center for Experiential Learning and Community Engagement, Texas A&M University - San Antonio offers a Financial Literacy Fellows program with peer to peer education, one-on-one coaching, in-class presentations with a variety of topics, on and off campus outreach, and partnerships with entities both on and off campus. The goals of the program are to improve overall competency of personal finance, decrease finance-induced stress, career and economic development post-graduation, and improve retention rates. Major initiatives and programs include the Financial Literacy Fellows, a year-long program open to students majoring in finance or accounting at the undergraduate level, or are in the Masters of Public Accounting program. Students selected to serve as Financial Literacy Fellows are peer educators that advance financial literacy through campus presentations, community education, and creating individualized capstone projects to solve problems they see in the world. The Fellows help build capacity and reach, and improve relations with students. Another initiative are in-class presentations, which are incorporated into the First Year Seminar to acquaint new Jaguar students with Budgeting 101 and other financial education curriculum. Faculty in all departments and at all course levels can also request presentations on a variety of topics. For on-campus engagement Texas A&M University-San Antonio coordinates a variety of campus engagement events weekly throughout the academic year, and highlight a cluster of programs and workshops during the annual Financial Literacy Week (fall semester) and Money Smart Week (spring semester) in collaboration with several other campus departments. Money coaching appointments include one-on-one coaching which is wholly tailored to student needs and goals and is available free of charge to Jaguar students. Students meet with a trained money coach to strategize and implement a plan to help each student reach their financial goals. As a part of off-campus engagement, Texas A&M University-San Antonio also partners with community organizations such as Junior Achievement of South Texas to work with neighboring independent school districts so younger students can achieve financial literacy and capability before reaching higher education, as well as GEAR UP, a federal fund that helps low-income districts prepare students for higher education.

First-Year Experience
Rating
0.0 stars

The Office of First-Year Experience (FYE) challenges and supports students across the first year to connect them with outstanding learning opportunities that help with the transition into university life and achieving both academic and personal goals. We offer guidance, advice, and support as students navigate their college experience on our campus. Through programs, resources, and services, we provide opportunities and information students need to help them meet fellow Jaguars and to view Texas A&M-San Antonio as home.

We promote a student-centered environment that supports all students during their transitions to discover, engage, and connect at A&M-San Antonio and we aspire to:
• Encourage students to be self-directed learners through a strengths-based mindset;
• Actively challenge students on a path of self-discovery to become lifelong learners;
• Foster an environment that allows students to cut across traditional boundaries and viewpoints through dialogue and innovative learning opportunities;
• Cultivate a foundation for student persistence through intentional and transformative experiences that support students’ personal growth and development.

The core values of the Office of First-Year Experience are:
• Discover: To provide pathways for students to discover success, a sense of self, and a healthy sense of adventure.
• Engage: To encourage students to become active participants in their journey through higher education by engaging in the learning process and participating in dialogue that pushes them out of their comfort zone.
• Connect: To connect students, through meaningful experiences, to the university and broader community.

Our program components consist of the following:
• First-Year Seminar (FYS): this is a three-credit hour, success seminar designed to help students discover their place on campus, in society, within their discipline, and their career. Each course also has an assigned peer leader who collaborates and provide instructional support alongside the instructor, plan/present curriculum and instructional activities, coordinate and assist with the planning of events/programs and have one-on-one personalized mentorship meetings with students.
• Learning Communities (LC): 2-4 linked courses that allow participants to partake in exclusive activities created to enhance their learning experience at A&M-San Antonio. We have major specific, themed and traditional communities. The faculty in each LC, team up to build connections amongst the linked courses through shared assignments and activities.
• Common Experience: This is a yearlong initiative designed to cultivate a common intellectual conversation on a theme and facilitate increased interactions among faculty, staff, and students. It provide participants an opportunity to deconstruct and explore a common subject through multidisciplinary lenses and apply academic thought towards finding meaningful solutions to discovered challenges. Throughout the year, various events and programs provide opportunities for engagement for the entire university community and beyond.
• Faculty Advising Program: We pair select first-year students with a faculty mentor who will be available to them throughout their entire first year on campus. Faculty are assigned four students each and are given $200 per mentee to be able to attend group mentoring social events either on- or off-campus.

Welcome to composition and rhetoric! While most of you are taking this course because it is required, we hope that all of you will leave with more confidence in your reading, writing, researching, and speaking abilities as these are all elements of freshman composition. Many times, these elements are presented in excellent textbooks written by top scholars. While the collaborators of this particular textbook respect and value those textbooks available from publishers, we have been concerned with disenfranchising students who do not have the resources to purchase textbooks. Therefore, we decided to put together this Open Educational Resource (OER) explicitly for use in freshman composition courses at Texas A&M University. Thanks to a generous grant from Dean David Carlson of the Texas A&M University Libraries, this project became a reality. It is a collaborative endeavor undertaken by faculty in the libraries and English Department as part of the Provost’s Student Success Initiatives at Texas A&M and continues to be a work in progress. Combined, Dr. Terri Pantuso, Dr. Kathy Anders, and Prof. Sarah LeMire have over 30 years of experience in writing and research instruction. Our goal is for students to leave this course as critical thinkers, polished writers, and informed citizens who can engage in civil public discourse. Gig ‘em, Ags!

The Lions Den Classroom is a retention-focused initiative to engage the Deans of the college with more impactful interactions with students majoring in the College of Education and Human Services. It is our belief that students want to have more of a connection with the Deans and want to know who they are. As the Deans visit classrooms with goodies throughout the academic year, it allows students to ask questions, understand the college on a deeper level, and provides them with the opportunity to get a firsthand view of the Deans. Lions Den Classroom most importantly provides students the chance to discover information they would not be able to find anywhere else.

Reading the Globe is a program offered to our freshman class each year. Our students read a book set in a foreign country, discuss how the book’s author or narrator displays self-determination skills (self-awareness; self-regulation; self-advocacy;and self-empowerment); growth mindset; purpose and a sense of belonging. Students then engage in class discussion about these skills, how the author used them, and how they (the students) can learn and employ the skills to complete their education in a timely manner. At the end
of the semester, students may choose to enter a video and/or essay contest to show what they have learned about self-determination and how they would apply those skills when traveling to a foreign country. From the videos/essays, a pool of students is selected for an interview. From this group, 15 students are chosen for an all-expense paid trip to a foreign country-typically the country in which the book is set. During the trip, students are expected to identify and use self-determination skills and growth mindset, as well as develop a sense of purpose and belonging. Upon their return, students serve as a Reading the Globe Ambassadors for a period of one year. During this time, they are expected to mentor students in the incoming freshman class. They also choose a non-profit related to issues raised in the book they read; they engage in fund-raising activities and community service with their chosen non-profit as a way to practice their advocacy skills.
