About the CAE

The Center for Academic Excellence helps create and sustain a clear, coherent and engaging academic environment for first-time Freshman, as well as assisting all students through to graduation.

The primary strategy is to achieve desired student success using an intrusive academic advising model, tutoring, Freshmen experience activities (to include but not limited to FYE course), orientation activities and the use of fully functioning Math Lab with companion Writers Studio that provide supplemental instructional support to students.

“The CAE ”, will work collaboratively with Enrollment Management. Office of Institutional Planning, Research, and Assessment (OIPRA), Assistant Provost, and Business Office to achieve desired results.
