Mission, Values & Objectives

Mission

Student Access and Educational Equity (SAEE) is an educational pipeline utilizing a series of integrated experiences including advising, tutoring, mentoring, programming, supplemental instruction, undergraduate research opportunities and partnerships to improve student persistence and graduation from high school to college, and beyond. SAEE enhances the academic experience of student scholars by providing necessary preparatory skills for students’ career and post-graduate educational pursuits.
