Mission Statement

Sojourner Truth

The mission of the African American Scholastic Programs (AASP) is to provide its students with appropriate program services while demonstrating sensitivity and appreciation of different life situations and academic endeavors. AASP promotes student success and goal attainment through academic, career/vocational and personal counseling.

The programs and services are directed to underrepresented students to assist them in acquiring a high school diploma, and Associates of Arts/Science degree, transfer to a baccalaureate institution, obtain career information, grow through cultural enrichment and become lifelong learners.

These programs were initially designed to assist African American students; however, because of the richness of the program, AASP now assists a diverse student population.
