Personalized Academic and Career Exploration



Personalized Academic & Career Exploration was developed as our Quality Enhancement Plan for reaffirmation of SACS accreditation.  However, it is much more and reflects an institutional commitment to providing high-quality programming to students as they navigate their journey to graduation from Texas State University.


This presentation will describe PACE and the synergies that develop when programs key to student success – academic advising, career counseling, peer mentoring, academic coaching and University Seminar – collaborate on the implementation of curricular and co-curricular programs and services that enhance student success.  Participants will learn more about:


  •  The “first year experience” (such as our University Seminar) as a foundation for academic excellence


  • How to develop relationships with academic advising and career services personnel that compliment the classroom experience with the goal of bringing students to a deeper understanding of the role that each class plays in their academic and professional development


  • The role of peer mentors and academic coaches in student success


  • Becoming connected to PACE with the goal of developing a more personalized / customized academic experience in the classroom, program, department or college


  • Developing an electronic assessment portfolio for measuring student learning outcome achievement


Faculty and staff interested in learning more about PACE will benefit from this workshop.  Year one results will be shared with participants and discussion is encouraged and expected!
