Achieving Success through Collaboration Engagement, and Determination

ASCEND is an educational pipeline scholarship program for first generation, underprepared, and/or low income students which utilizes a series of intentional programming to improve student persistence at Rowan University.

The intentional programming includes: advising, tutoring, mentoring, leadership development, supplemental courses, and undergraduate research opportunities. Through faculty, administration, and most importantly, their peers, the ASCEND program inspires academic excellence, enhances the overall college experience, as well as encourages post-graduate educational and career opportunities for students.

The ASCEND team is committed to addressing and meeting the needs of students through a holistic approach of attainment by ensuring our team not only meet the needs of students throughout their undergraduate experience, but prepare them with life skills to succeed once they graduate.
