College Access Student Success (CASS)

The College Access & Student Success (CASS) Office at BU Wheelock manages programs that support students at nearly every grade level, from kindergarten to postdoctoral. Many of these programs work by giving students access to learning and mentoring opportunities that help them expand on their classroom experience. Others work by creating direct service opportunities and specialized scholarship opportunities for BU  students.

CASS’s programs contribute to our college’s understanding of the positive impact such programs can have on students. The data these projects generate–including academic and career outcomes, graduation rates, and direct feedback from participating students–is used to support  educational research and the continued refinement of our own management of such programs.
