Academic Center for Excellence

Recognizing that everyone comes to college with different educational experiences, the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) sponsor programs focuse on those who identify as first-generation college students, may need assistance in adjusting to an urban city, or seek assistance in fully utilizing campus resources, be they academic, financial, or social. ACE is also home to the Rotunda Scholars program, which provides an intensive one-year system of support for students selected based upon their admissions applications.
