SAN MARCOS — The American Association for Higher Education has named Jaime Chahin, Dean of the College of Applied Arts at Texas State University-San Marcos, as a consultant for the Building Engagement and Attainment for Minority Students (BEAMS) Project.
To support the 110 minority-serving institutions in its BEAMS Project, AAHE has invited a group of higher education experts to work with campuses in designing action plans that improve student learning, to conduct site visits to institutions implementing the action plans, and to represent the BEAMS Project nationally.
Chahin, a former AAHE Hispanic Caucus chair, joins a pool of diverse consultants from such institutions as the American Council on Education's Center for Advancement of Racial and Ethnic Equity, Clemson University, Indiana University at Bloomington and Texas A&M University. This group of consultants represents diversity of experience, role, and institutional affiliation. AAHE continues to welcome others to support the wide range of projects being undertaken by BEAMS campuses. AAHE is particularly committed to involving AAHE members in this work.
