A Message from the Assistant Vice President of Retention Management & Advising Services
Greetings Students, Parents, Faculty, Staff, and Administrators:
Welcome to Retention Management and Advising Services, one of three major areas within the Division of Student Success and Enrollment Management, at Kentucky State University. As the Assistant Vice President, I encourage students to set high expectations, work hard, take advantage of university resources, and to be productive both inside and outside of the classroom. We provide support for all students to enable them to successfully meet their personal, academic, and professional objectives throughout their college experience.
Retention Management and Advising Services houses 4 administrative departments: Academic Center for Excellence (ACE), Center for Academic Persistence and Success (CAPS), Placement, Testing, Career Preparation, and Student Support Services (SSS). Each of these departments provides a broad-range of programs and services that support the educational experience of students such as: academic advisement, counseling, peer tutoring, academic success workshops, graduate and professional school testing, peer mentoring, and specialized services for specific populations, included but not limited to: adult and commuter students, first-generation and low-income college students. Professional advisors and counselors monitor the academic, career and personal goals/needs of students and provide individual guidance and assistance. Retention resources are also made available to faculty, staff, and parents. At Kentucky State University, we believe that “Student Success is Our Success.”
Should you need more information or have questions, please feel free to contact my office at 335 Carl M. Hill Student Center or via telephone at 502-597-6671 or any of the departments within RMAS. We look forward to assisting you in achieving your academic goals.
Vacant, Assistant Vice President
