Carleton has many dedicated employees. In each issue of Carleton NOW, we introduce a person or team from the Carleton community in an effort to showcase the outstanding individuals that contribute to the University’s many accomplishments.
Having helped more than 5,000 students during its second year in operation in 2003-2004, the Student Academic Success Centre (SASC) plays an integral role in assisting students with academic planning. SASC assists students in building a foundation for academic success by providing a multitude of services that facilitate personal direction and academic competence. SASC provides academic advising, study skill workshops, assistance with choosing or changing Majors, helps students understand academic rules and regulations, and enhance academic portfolios.
Additionally, special programs are in place to assist students with the transition to university.
“The most rewarding thing about working at the Student Academic Success Centre is knowing that we have assisted students in achieving their goals,” says Acting Manager, Meg Houghton.
