Black Student Achievement Program

The Black Student Achievement Program (BSAP) aims to support the retention and graduation of Black identified students by providing:

  • Academic and personal support to 1st year and transfer students.
  • Transition to college support through peer mentoring assistance.
  • Assistance in navigating the college environment.

Following the principle motto, "we lift as we climb," our vision is to facilitate graduation for all participants.
