The mission of the ASC is to guide, support, and inspire student-athletes in their pursuit of excellence. We provide quality academic/life skills education and support for all student-athletes at Tulane. Additionally, ASC aims to promote student-athlete academic achievement, community responsibility, and personal accountability. In doing so, our department believes in preparing student-athletes for the vast array of opportunities that will be presented in the future. Finally, ASC works to ensure that all student-athletes maintain NCAA continuing eligibility with regard to overall GPA, earned hours, and percentage of degree requirements.
