Our Mission

Retention and Student Success (RSS) in the Office of Diversity, Outreach & Inclusion empowers students to excel academically through programming that encourages metacognitive problem solving and enhances their self-efficacy through engagement with internal and external stakeholders that provide students with relevant engineering skills, hands-on experience and professional and personal development opportunities.

Academic Coaching in Engineering (ACE)

The Academic Coaching in Engineering (ACE) program is designed to increase the number of women and diverse engineering students retained in engineering and exceling in core engineering courses. ACE includes a separate space for peer-assisted tutoring as well as supplemental instruction leads by upper-class engineering student coaches.

Dr. Edwin LeePlease see below for a calendar with our events. For questions, please contact Dr. Edwin ACE sessions concentrate on core engineering courses for first- and second-year students. During finals week, special study tables are hosted by the academic coaches to assist students in preparing for exams.
