Student Success

AASCU state colleges – and universities prepare the new majority to realize – and redefine – the American Dream.

“I couldn’t have had better student success thought partners than with the staff at AASCU. They know how to create community and safe spaces where my colleagues and I could talk openly and frankly about the challenges we face in our institutional transformation work, and they pushed my thinking and supported me as I developed new frameworks that I was struggling to articulate. My relationship with AASCU has enabled me to gain more confidence in myself as a student success leader, and they’ve lifted my work and the work of my colleagues up in so many impactful ways.”

“The Frontier Set (FS) allowed several student success practitioners like me to find a community of like-minded individuals with the same interest in education. With the support of our intermediary at AASCU, we have become a student-center institution committed to the equitable improvement of the education of our students. The FS was not only an institutional transformational experience but also a personal one.”
