Title III Mentoring Program.
Takahata, Gail M.
In 1993, San Diego City College performed an evaluation of its Title III Mentoring Program to assess its efficacy in improved student outcomes. The program consisted of faculty-counselor teams and peer mentors to provide student support. Surveys were distributed to students asking about knowledge and use of campus services, campus climate, and personal growth. Due to the low rate of response (30%), caution is advised in interpreting the results. Responses indicated that student proteges were more likely than the general student population to be aware of certain support services, but less likely to be aware of academic counseling services. The majority of proteges and students in general reported very positive experiences at City College and anticipated future educational success. Proteges were more likely to interact with and seek support from faculty members. Students felt that their experiences at City College contributed to their personal growth, except in the area of "becoming aware of different cultures." Overall, students reported improvement in their writing and time management skills, and an increased knowledge of campus services. Suggestions included more interaction with faculty and improved implementation of the program. The Title III Mentoring Program Survey is appended. (YKH)
