Oregon State University College Assistance Migrant Program Performance Report for 1982-83.
Duarte, E. D.
During its first year of operation in 1982-83, the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) at Oregon State University (OSU) fully achieved 19 of its 20 goals. The program to recruit and assist migrant seasonal farmworker students in higher education faced three major problems during the year: late organization, OSU's rigorous academic demands, and, most significantly, financial aid for CAMP students. However, the staff successfully provided students with services including placement testing, academic advising, developmental coursework, tutoring, personal counseling, admissions, housing, orientation, enrichment, and financial aid advising. The program met goals regarding staff selection and training; program establishment; and student recruitment, admission, orientation, learning assistance, academic evaluation and monitoring, pre- and post-CAMP assessments of student academic needs; and program evaluation, but did not achieve full student participation in extracurricular activities. Among the 30 CAMP students, 90% completed the year academically ready to continue, 77% planned to continue in higher education, and 100% found the CAMP staff satisfactory. The program achieved its goals through wide use of networks among media services and migrant programs and organizations, and through direct community contact. Students recommended that the program be more aware of financial aid deadlines, the staff be increased, the program be expanded, and that group meetings be held frequently. (SB)
