evolve is an Academic Support Program housed in Academic Affairs that provides retention-based support services for female students, especially our transfer population. We want transfer females to value their undergraduate experience and finish at Sam Houston State University.

evolve is comprised of four program components that not only complement one another, but also provide holistic educational experiences & opportunities for female students. Our mission is to help students evolve as scholars, as women & as professionals.

By participating in evolve, you will develop a sense of community & belonging & receive specialized academic support services. You will become integrated into the SHSU experience & cultivate your heart to serve others by living the University motto, “The measure of a Life is its Service.”

Ambassadors are a select group of females who serve as student representatives to aid in building & shaping the Program Components of evolve. They are the student voices that drive the program to ensure that it continues to be an initiative built for students, by students.

Each evolve participant is paired with an Ambassador who serves as a direct companion for navigating campus and/or the program.
