Student Academic Services believes in empowering students. We encourage all students who work with us to engage intellectually, socially and emotionally; set personally rewarding goals, manage themselves, and the demands of college life. We believe that all students benefit from mentoring and supportive relationships, therefore we strive to empower students by facilitating active involvement in their education and meaningful connections to peers, professors, and the campus community.
