Mission Statement

The office of Multicultural Student Affairs, (MSA), inclusive of the Office of Disability Services and TRiO Programs (Student Support Services, Upward Bound, Educational Talent Search and Rural Talent Search), Provides culturally sensitive, holistic, academic and educational support services to current Texas State students, the university community as well as outreach to prospective students and their families. these services are provided to students through a collaborative effort with university departments and organizations to highlight the creation, implementation, and support of a culturally diverse university environment with special attention to students from underrepresented and protected classes.

Description

The Educational Talent Search Program identifies disadvantaged young people who have the desire and the potential for success in post-secondary education. ETS encourages participants to continue and graduate from secondary schools or to return to high school if they have dropped out. The goal of ETS is to have participants enroll in some form of post-secondary education. We work with students between the ages of 11-27 and that have completed the sixth grade. In any given project, two-thirds (2/3) at the participants must be low-income persons who are also potential first generation college students. Many services are provided by ETS and these include student academic, financial, and personal counseling. We help students with career exploration and aptitude assessments, assistance with the re-entry process to high school or college, and information on post secondary education, assistance in completing college admission and financial aid applications. We also offer personal development workshops in areas such as test taking and study skills and personal growth (seventh and eighth graders). We coordinate mentoring and tutoring sessions for students with academic need.
