Chevron/Starz Career Development Program

Starz Transitional Environment Program (STEP) is a freshman transition Project through Starz University is a program designed to help incoming freshmen make a successful adjustment into college life. Faculty advisors, instructors, and student leaders are trained in a variety of leadership and facilitation skills to work with students for easy integration into the University. The student leaders then co-facilitate monthly “Learning Station” activities for all freshmen on topics such as decision making, problem-solving, time management, active listening, communication, and relationship building. Freshmen work in small groups with the same student leaders over the course of the year to create a sense of belonging and community spirit within each small group.

CAREER DEVELOPSTEP makes the transition easier at Starz University not only for freshman students but for those individuals attending specialized or short-term programs as well. This intervention program is even more relevant to the student of the College of Information Technology because of the absence of a broader ICT study at the Secondary academic level of the national curriculum. The program aims at redesigning college integration by showcasing a learning environment that is less threatening. The trained facilitators also serve as counselors to help students choose the right programs and develop good study habits. All students involved in the program attend the same core classes.
