CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – The Center for Academic Student Achievement’s (CASA) AIM Program at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi has been recognized by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) for adopting and utilizing CRLA standards and guidelines for effective mentor training and best practices.  

The award was recently accepted by John Fortiscue and Colin Bohne, both CASA Retention Specialists.

CASA's AIM Program has met the training requirements for International Mentor Training Program Certification (IMTPC). The center is now equipped to ensure their employees are receiving the most current research-based training, mentoring skills for "best practices" when assisting students, and tools for program documentation and assessment.

Mentors will be better prepared to assist students in difficult situations and will be made aware of non-verbal and verbal cues on how to assess different situation. CASA believes it is important to build relationships and create dialogue with all students that may need assistance when adjusting to college.
