    1. academic support needs at Kent State University.
    2. collaborations with faculty, inside and outside of the classroom.
    3. new ASC programs and initiatives.
    4. identification and elimination of barriers to student academic success
  2. The Council reviews and provides feedback on the ASC’s annual assessment and evaluation reports.
  3. Council faculty members share the mission and work of the ASC with colleagues through meetings in their academic units and other opportunities as appropriate.  Council faculty members advocate for ASC collaborations across campus.
  4. The Council may invite experts to join meetings or submit information to the council in review of specific concerns or proposals.
