History and Funding
The Academic Advancement Center (A Student Support Services Program) has served over 6,500 students on the CSU campus since its arrival on campus in 1978. The Center is funded by a primary grant from the U.S. Department Education, with additional funds for operations, tutoring, and for direct grants to students from the University. A grant from FirstBank Community Fund of Colorado also allows for enrichment of programs.
As one of the 946 federally-funded TRIO
Student Support Services programs in the nation, our mission is to help low-income, first-generation college students, foster youth, and students with disabilities to stay in college until they earn their baccalaureate degrees.
Thank you to those who participated in the AAC 2013 CSUnity Group!
Each spring, over 2,000 CSU students gather for a day-long service plunge in and around the Fort Collins community! CSUnity takes place on Saturday, April 20, 2013 from 9:00am – 3:00pm. The specific service-project we’ll be working on is yet to be determined.
