Mercy College, a federally designated Hispanic-Serving Institution, created the revolutionary PACT (Personalized Achievement Contract) model as a solution to the urgent need for improved student success in higher education, particularly among low income, minority, and first generation students. The PACT program is a theory-based model designed to improve student engagement and career preparedness through an individualized, customized, integrated, and focused approach. From recruitment to graduation, a participating student is paired with a professionally trained PACT mentor, who provides exceptional one-on-one engagement to guide the student toward academic achievement, financial and work-life skills, leadership development, and a successful career trajectory.
The Associate Director of PACT (Bronx Achievement Pact) will manage all aspects of student success, college readiness, and community service. The Associate and well-trained professional staff will provide a variety of highly integrated services and programs to support academic success, student development and a positive college transition. The Associate Director will serve as a liaison between certain on/off-campus departments and services, fostering a collaborative, student service-oriented campus culture. The Associate Director of PACT (Bronx Achievement Pact) will also specifically assume operational responsibility for the Bronx Achievement Pact, an educational pipeline program designed to link the College directly with underserved high school students in the Bronx in order to put them on the path to college. The Bronx Achievement Pact includes an Early College program, mentoring and tutoring by College students, and other college readiness skill development. The Associate Director of PACT (Bronx Achievement Pact) will play a unique and exciting role in creating stronger transitions from high school to college and ensuring that students are prepared for academic, personal, and professional success.
