Center for Access & Postsecondary Success Banner

Our Mission

The Center for Access & Postsecondary Success (CAPS), formerly the Center for Academic Programs (CAP), advances educational equity by increasing access to higher education and transformative experiences that support retention and graduation for students who are first-generation to college, from low-income households, and from other underserved populations.


CAPS programs serve students at both the pre-collegiate and college levels. CAPS designs and implements these programs in accordance with guidelines set forth by its funding bodies, including the University, the U.S. Department of Education, and other programs which promote educational equity and opportunity for all.
