Vision in Service to University Priorities 

Southeast Missouri State University aims to be the University of First Choice. Priority I of the Unversity's Strategic Plan is particularly relevant to the vision, goals, and functions of the Division of Enrollment Management and Student Success. In the words of Priority I,

"The University must provide to its students a supportive, student-centered environment that challenges them, treats them with dignity, and helps them grow and succeed."

The Division of Enrollment Management and Student Success is committed to helping create an environment which is student-centered, respectful of student dignity, and contributes to their academic and personal success. 


The mission of the Academic Support Centers (ASC) is to enhance the academic achievement and educational attainment of all students. Academic Support Centers include programs/services for underrepresented populations (first generation, low-income, students with disabilities or U.S. ethnic minority students) and academically at-risk students. The programs span the educational scope from undergraduate to graduate and professional programs.
