About Us

Student Academic Engagement and Success (SAES), an area within the Office of the Provost, works to ensure that SMU undergraduate students are aware of the academic opportunities and support systems that operate across campus to ensure their academic success and enrich their experiences inside and outside the classroom.

We partner with the Associate Provosts for Curricular Innovation and Policy and Faculty Affairs, Associate Provost for Institutional Planning and Effectiveness, and Directors of Assessment, the Associate Vice President of Enrollment Management, and Associate Deans to develop a comprehensive retention and graduation strategy for all undergraduate students.
