February 9, 2021

Conway CampbellThe University's Division for Student Success is committed to providing our students with services and opportunities that meet their needs especially during these challenging times because of the pandemic. Our students' academic success, resilience, graduation, and employability are paramount to an Assumption education. Below, I share more about the resources available to your child, through the Division for Student Success, that will guide them on a path of success while at Assumption and beyond.

Student Accessibility Services (SAS)

Student Accessibility Services provides equity, access, and inclusion for all students with disabilities. Students who self-identify as having a disability and provide relevant documentation engage in an interactive process with Student Accessibility Services to develop reasonable accommodations for the classroom and community. In addition, ongoing support is provided on how to successfully navigate the University environment with a disability.

Academic Support Center (ASC)

The Academic Support Center offers peer tutoring in most academic disciplines. Thirty-five peer tutors work one-on-one with students on writing, mathematics, accounting, economics, finance, foreign languages, philosophy, theology, natural sciences, and more. The ASC also conducts weekly group reviews in chemistry, organic chemistry, and accounting. Additionally, the professional staff is available for one-on-one meetings with students on time management, reading and note-taking strategies, and other skills based techniques. The ASC’s primary goal is to assist students in reaching their academic potential.

Cross Cultural Center (CCC)

The Cross Cultural Center serves as an inclusive and safe space for community members to explore their own identities and learn about other races, cultures, and religions. The Center partners with University departments, student clubs, and organizations on awareness programs, lectures, workshops, retreats, and performances. Cross Cultural Center initiatives include First in the Pack, a semester-long series of workshops for First-Generation Students; the ALANA Pre-Orientation Program for our African American, Latino, Asian American and Native/Indigenous American students; and our monthly dialogue series, Reflections on Race, for students, staff and faculty, including constructive dialogues on race and identity.

Career Development and Internship Center (CDIC)

Assumption’s CDIC staff assists students beginning on a student’s first day, as they plan, prioritize, and begin to think about their college and post-graduate journey. The CDIC offers a variety of services and resources for students including one-on-one career advising meetings, job and internships search support, career development and networking events, mock interviews, in-person/virtual interviews with employers, support with the graduate school application process, assistance applying to post-graduate service opportunities, LinkedIn support, and access to our online developmental resources.

International Student Success Center (ISSC)

The ISSC serves as the primary resource for all international student related immigration and cultural adjustment needs including new student orientations, work authorizations, travel signatures, obtaining a social security number, driver’s licenses, and much more. As an international student at Assumption, your student will receive personalized academic, social, and immigration support services from our staff.

As you can see, we care about our students, and we know that you do as well. Therefore, we are here to work alongside you to see your students persist, eventually graduate, and to find meaningful employment according to their purpose. An Assumption education should prepare students to go boldly into the outside world. This kind of experience will fill their hearts to go forth into their post-graduation communities and be committed to a life of service.

This is a time of tremendous change for you, your child, and your family. If I can answer any questions, I’d be glad to help. I look forward to welcoming you and your family soon!
