Academic and Personal Goal Attainment

We want to help you achieve your goals; and if you believe you can, you will.  We have crafted a series of activities based on the responses of hundreds of students which are shown to assist you in achieving your academic goals. Together, with your Class Deans, you will develop personal and academic plans to achieve your goal.  There are myriad intervening factors which can contribute to academic difficulty. We will work together to pinpoint those and develop strategies to mitigate them. 

What do I need to do now?
