NCAA Accelerating Academic Success Program Conference

Limited-resource institutions are invited to attend the NCAA Accelerating Academic Success Program (AASP) Conference. The AASP Conference provides a broad-based schedule of programming that benefits chancellors and presidents, athletics departments, academic advisors, registrars, development and those interested in the academic success of student-athletes. It also provides the opportunity for inter-institutional discussions on issues and solutions among individuals from institutions that may have similar missions, demographics, challenges and success.
