The Student and Academic Support unit has built a partnership between academic and student affairs, blending in experiential learning to operate at a higher level and become more collegial and accountable. The collaboration of the First Year and Transitions programming with University Advising services, the James W. Stuckert Career Center, and Residence Life is in place to foster student engagement, while effectively evaluating program initiative outcomes through frequent feedback. Through programs such as First Generation and Robinson Scholars, we are able to offer more tailored support services to meet the specific and diverse needs of our students. Our mission is to provide a challenging and supportive learning environment to promote development in the areas of critical thinking and reflection.
