Vision of opportunities include CG billet assignment to TSU as an instructor at no cost to TSU, CG internships for students of this discipline, Summer Work-study program at CG Sector for students for course credit. • http://www.tsu.edu/pages/10.asp?item=6784 • 22 Sep: We are beginning a working relationship with Texas Southern University. LTJG Quinton DuBose and I visited the university’s Office of Cooperative Education and Placement Services. They were very receptive and accommodating to the point of inviting us back to participate in their upcoming Career Fair at no cost. The Director of the Cooperative Education and Placement Services has offered to place CSPI and other Coast Guard program information on the University’s Facebook site and place Coast Guard information in the office spaces. • We have also been made aware of a new degree program in Maritime Transportation Management and Security that will be introduced on campus in 2011.

They say there may be opportunities for Coast Guard personnel to serve as guest instructors and lecturers. FOCUS AREAS – ISSUES • Currently there is only 1 active CSPI student assigned to the local Houston Recruiting Office. This student is from Stephen F. Austin University which is 3 ½ hours away from Houston. Prior to LTJG DuBose’s and my visit to the TSU campus, the Coast Guard had zero visibility amongst the student population. We were approached by curious students and asked questions about missions, scholarships, and employment opportunities. This says that this student body is open to military service and is interested in jobs concerning Maritime missions and security.

With that being said, it will be a challenge to recruit at the university because a majority of the students are biology and pharmacy majors.
