SASC Mission

The mission of SASC is to provide equal opportunity for academic development and excellence for all students–especially those who are:

  • Underrepresented
  • Low income
  • First generation in college
  • Educationally disadvantaged
  • Physically or learning disabled
  • Non-traditional students
  • Affected by bias

We facilitate student transitions, build community, increase retention and graduation rates, and foster a campus climate that is accepting of all students.

We accomplish these goals through:

  • Direct and supplemental instruction
  • Learning and emotional support
  • Academic skills training
  • Curriculum development
  • Mentoring and outreach
  • Partnerships with colleagues across campus
