SASS works to align, enhance and advocate for academic support services and college access initiatives across the university and within the broader St. Louis region. We provide a comprehensive support model to implement strategies and practices that promote student achievement.

The SASS unit includes Student Enrichment and Achievement, which provides targeted support and workshops for students facing academic challenges. An experienced team of success coaches partner with you to create a culture of enrichment and achievement through a commitment to holistic and individualized support. SEA also provides oversight for the early alert system, which initiates electronic communications when a student experiences a success barrier in a course in partnership with faculty and other support service departments.
