Retention of the Nontraditional Student Through Peer Modeling.
Montes, Delia; Ortega, Ludy
An innovative program knows as "ASTW", a system that works, was designed to assist the non-traditional student in a university setting. The program goal is retention of the non-traditional student through counseling and learning assistance. Peer Counselors play a key role in the total program operation. They are the paraprofessionals who participate directly with the professional staff in determining program needs, the deliverers of services to students, the evaluators of the program, and often times, the creators of innovative techniques and projects to better serve the non-traditional student. These two papers describe the program and present the model used in its implementation. (Author/CKJ)
