Welcome to Achieve! at West Chester University
Achieve! is a holistic support program for students at the University. We provide additional resources to promote the success of all students admitted through Achieve! during their time at WCU. We work both individually and in groups to help our students perform well academically, develop meaningful connections, and cultivate self-awareness and advocacy skills.
Achieve! students are admitted into the University because we believe they show the potential to succeed in higher education. Every Achieve! student is paired with an Achieve! Graduate Consultant (a current graduate student at the University) to work with individually during their first year and beyond at WCU. Acheive! students also attend Academic Success Workshops facilitated by our office covering a variety of relevant topics.
We aim to foster a sense of community in our students by encouraging regular meetings with their Achieve! Graduate Consultant, exploring the numerous resources offered by the campus community, and offering group Academic Success Workshops tailored to meet student needs.
