The office of Academic Advancement assists ALANA and first-generation college students in the development and implementation of their academic and career goals. Academic Advancement serves as an anchor for enhanced University-wide initiatives to promote the academic success of the undergraduate students, with a particular focus on ALANA (African-, Latino/a-, Asian-, and Native-American decent) and first-generation college students. We work to make a big difference in the lives of the students with whom we serve.
The office sponsors various events and programs that work to support the success of its students. Support services range from directing the ACE (Academic Clark Excellence) Summer Institute to helping students create academic plans, offering peer mentoring and study groups. Academic Advancement cultivates the support networks and services that help students navigate their Clark careers.
