Our aim is to assist student athletes in reaching their full potential by balancing the demands of academics and athletics. CAAS works closely with coaches, faculty, and other campus offices to support and assist student athletes in achieving their academic and personal goals.
Student Athlete Peer Mentor Program
Student athletes are empowered to improve their academic achievement by developing skills to become confident, effective, and independent learners by meeting with peer mentors on a weekly basis.
In addition to serving as a study space for student athletes that includes computers and printers, CAAS provides direct academic support services such as Tutoring and Student Athlete Peer Mentoring.
