The mission of Xavier’s Student Academic Success Office (SASO) is to improve retention and graduation rates of Xavier students by offering academic support through tutoring, supplemental instruction (SI), and academic success workshops. These services were originally offered only to freshman and transfer students taking introductory courses in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics. Writing and Reading centers are also available to all Xavier students through this office. Using BUILD funding support, SASO has expanded its tutoring services and supplemental instruction to include sophomore level courses. More
