African American Student Academic Services (AASAS) is a campus-wide program and is charged with providing support services to all African American undergraduate students regardless of their major, school or college and in conjunction with existing UW-Madison programs and staff. The program coordinator seeks to be a point of contact for African American students by establishing relationships with incoming, continuing, and transfer students upon entry into UW-Madison and throughout the year, on an individual and group basis.
Contact is achieved by reference and referral, as well as by participation in student organizational events; collaborating with local and University resources; participation at Student Orientation, Advising and Registration (SOAR); pre-college programs (e.g., Summer Collegiate Experience, or SCE); and other forms of communication (e.g., office hours, e-mail). Among the numerous roles and goals anticipated for the office, providing basic academic advising and informal counseling and outreach at the South Hall Office and at additional sites on campus will be among the initial priorities of the program.
AASAS is part of Pathways to Excellence - L&S Student Academic Affairs. Visit their web site at http://www.lssaa.wisc.edu/pathways/index.html.
