Academic Support & Retention

The Office of the Associate Vice President for Academic Support and Retention, formerly known as the Office of the Associate Vice President Pre-Collegiate Initiatives and Academic Support, was established in 1998 to further enhance student success and to create a climate that promotes cultural, ethnic, and gender diversity. In addition to advocating for students, our staff coordinates a broad range of programs and services for students. Within the Office of the Associate Vice President for Academic Support and Retention, the associate vice president and the directors lead a team of professionals responsible for a wide variety of academic support services primarily for undergraduate students. We work to assure that student needs are met and all students are successful.
