The UAA Office of Student Success was recently awarded a $2.2 million Title III Grant, called Student Academic Growth, Engagement and Success (SAGE Success), from the U.S. Department of Education.

The five-year grant, proposed by Melanie Hulbert, Ph.D., and Cameron Nay, will build upon many of UAA's student success initiatives by providing peer-to-peer programs that engage students in gateway courses to persist. This includes academic coaches that will provide one-on-one study skills, time management and self-efficacy skills, and a best practice peer mentor program designed to engage with first-year students as they begin their academic careers at UAA.

"This grant directly aligns with UAA 2027 by putting students first and meeting the needs of our diverse student body by building relationships and letting them know that they belong at UAA," said UAA Provost Denise Runge.

As the UAA Learning Commons prepares to move from Sally Monserud Hall to the UAA/APU Consortium Library, the grant will help greatly expand these critical services for all students.
