The Center for Academic and Student Success (CASS) was established to support the University’s strategic mission “to prepare a diverse community of learners to excel in their chosen endeavors and to become responsible, productive, and innovative citizen leaders, locally and globally.” The
 programs form a cohesive unit that facilitates the academic success, retention, and holistic development of students from recruitment to graduation.

The Center for Academic and Student Success has two principal units: Academic Enrichment and Success, and Community Outreach through TRiO Programs. Students are the beneficiaries of this comprehensive and coordinated support of the academic experience.
