What is Research Aligned Mentorship (RAM) Program

Cases on Establishing Effective Collaborations in Academic Libraries
A Farmingdale State College program launched in 2015 through a First in the World FIPSE Grant from the United States Department of Education. Up to 250 first-time, first-year undergraduate students are randomly selected for this program each year. Students must qualify as low income, be a first-generation college student, or be a member of a historically minoritized community in order to be eligible for a variety of interventions that include first-year seminars, mentored research experiences, and advising and mentoring.

Abstract
To develop Farmingdale State College's first interdisciplinary research event, the library collaborated with several campus departments to establish Student Research Day. Inspired by its acquisition of a poster printer, the library proposed the implementation of a student poster session, sought out campus partnerships to garner student involvement, and secured event funding through a campus grant. Specifically, the library formed a strong partnership with the Research Aligned Mentorship (RAM) Program. This program provides extra benefits and research opportunities to students who are selected from a lottery of minority, low income, and/or first-generation college students. Through its collaboration with the RAM Program, the library facilitated specialized instruction, assessed students' confidence levels in conducting research, and successfully hosted a large-scale research event, the first of its kind at the college.
