Academic Support & Retention oversees:

and the Academic Resource Center

Academic Support & Retention coordinates campus-wide programs and initiatives that facilitate the academic success of all undergraduate students.


What We Do:

  • Coordinate programs and initiatives that support the transition and retention of all undergraduate students.

  • Support the campus community via workshops, data and assessment sharing, and other support or consultation regarding student academic performance and retention.

  • Identify students who are not making timely progress to degree and work with campus partners to foster initiatives that support students in meeting their academic goals.

  • Facilitate communication to students and their families that connects institutional expectations and the reality of the student’s experience at the University of Iowa.
