Achieve! Program


Achieve! strives to provide additional resources to promote the success of 1st year students at the University. We aim to expand students’ ability to perform academically, develop meaningful connections, and cultivate self-awareness and advocacy skills.


We envision a student population excited about learning and growing at the University, while engaging in the specific resources offered through Achieve! We anticipate students developing holistically by meeting with their graduate consultant, exploring the numerous resources offered by the campus community, and attending academic workshops tailored to student needs.
