Academic Success Advocates


As Academic Success Advocates, our primary mission is to serve by first appreciating the varied experiences and needs of our students. We are passionate about cultivating a robust environment that is inclusive of students from diverse backgrounds. ASA’s are intentional about creating a safe space that embraces all students as an indispensable part of our community. We will emphasize the importance of individuality and thought in order to prepare students to think innovatively. Using a holistic approach, we will strive to invest in each student while providing transformational opportunities anchored through building relationships. We will be your resource guide, connecting you to a network of applicable services from campus-partners united in one aim—your success!
