About Academic Success and Equity (ASE) Programs

Academic Success and Equity (ASE) Programs intentionally center communities that have been historically marginalized in traditional higher education settings: students who are Black & African-American, Latinx & Chicanx, Native Hawaiian & Pacific Islander, and former foster youth. The intersectional identities & cross-cultural experiences of ASE students are honored through mentorship, tailored resources, and culturally sustaining pedagogies that reflect an institutional commitment to student academic achievement. By providing academic and holistic support, the ASE Programs not only increase retention and completion, they foster inclusion and, as Beverly Daniel Tatum writes, “affirm identity, build community, and cultivate leadership.” In solidarity and unity, ASE Program students, staff, faculty, and administrators hold histories and heritage close, while leveraging a platform for future generations of leaders and advocates.
