College Assistance Migrant Program, Performance Report, 1981-82.
The College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) at Pan American University (PAU) in Edinburg, Texas, which recruits migrant students into higher education and provides quality support services (tutoring, counseling, follow-up, and financial assistance), served 202 freshmen during the 1981-82 academic year. The CAMP recruitment effort visited 34 high schools and recruited 307 applicants, from whom the freshmen were selected. Each CAMP student received $309 per semester and was eligible for other university financial aid. Although the year was difficult because the recession and increased unemployment among heads of households forced many CAMP students to seek part- and full-time employment, overall grade point average of CAMP freshmen was higher than that of all PAU freshman. Seventeen tutors conducted 140 sessions weekly for 93.1% of CAMP students; a study skills course was offered. Tutors received 25 hours of on-going staff development training. PAU faculty and staff continued to cooperate fully with CAMP. Individual and group counseling helped 93.4% of CAMP students with personal growth, self-awareness, values clarification, cultural awareness, and decision-making; a Self-Awareness Marathon was held. The report includes charts of CAMP students' academic performance during the year and CAMPS' goals/achievements for 1981-82, plus the Self-Awareness Marathon program. (MH)
