Academic Student Support
Student Support's mission is to provide a safe and exemplary educational community by delivering individualized activities and interventions that address academic barriers. We strive to make each student feel valued and respected and ensure a warm environment where students work to meet and achieve their academic needs and goals. Our intention is to demystify what it means to struggle academically and embrace and celebrate every student's learning differences. Our advocates remain consistent and engaged with each student, which helps every student build self-confidence, independence, and motivation to succeed.
