College Assistance Migrant Program Progress Report, 1982-83.
The College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) at Pan American University (PAU) in Edinburg, Texas, which helps students from low income migrant families attend college and has served 1,762 students since 1972, assisted 174 students during the 1982-83 academic year, giving them extensive support in tutoring, counseling, follow-up, and financial assistance. CAMP recruited over 200 applicants by visiting/contacting 25 high schools. Tutors gave sessions for 93.2% of CAMP students, 98% of whom indicated satisfaction with the service. After one year with CAMP and PAU, 90.3% of students who began the program returned to college. Staff received computer training and devised new forms, which will facilitate data collection and report writing. Objectives included improving participants' grade point average (GPA); listing ACT scores of CAMP students, so those with ACT composites of 10 or greater could take work-study or off-campus jobs; finding alternate funding sources; and initiating a Reading Development program. Projected goals for 1983-84 include increases in GPA, participation in retreats and cultural awareness activities, attendance at group/individual counseling sessions, staff development efforts, formulation of a timeline to collect data needed for report compilation, and pursuit of alternate funding sources. A 3-page table shows CAMP's goals and achievements for the year. (MH)
