Academic Support Programs (ASP) creates transformative educational experiences to help students thrive academically at the University of Washington. Committed to a diverse and inclusive university, we develop varied models of peer-to-peer support to help all students succeed. These models include a multidisciplinary study center (The Center for Learning and Undergraduate Enrichment, or CLUE), Academic Success Coaching, and intentional collaboration with campus partners.
Situated in Undergraduate Academic Affairs (UAA), we serve the University of Washington's larger mission, particularly in advancing and disseminating knowledge. We also embrace UAA’s values of collaboration, compassion, curiosity, equity, integrity and transformative learning.
