The Southern Arkansas University AmeriCorps VISTA project will meet poverty-related needs and create pathways out of poverty as we increase the rate of college degree completion among low income students. SAU VISTA members will research national trends and programming, contextualize local concerns and issues related to degree completion barriers, advise he university of specific, targeted programming opportunities to meet student needs, enlist university and community volunteer support for initiatives, and other capacity-building activities.

The Career Services VISTA will gather university statistics on our low-income students to analyze their choice of major and projected career path. They will also facilitate focus groups to collect information about student's goals, available resources, career readiness knowledge, and expectations from Career Services. The VISTA will use this information to develop mentor programs, organize panel discussions and workshops, and compile a resource database that students can use when transitioning from college to career.
