Mission, Vision, and Values


The Center for Academic Success provides collaborative student support services designed to empower students to become independent and active learners who thrive at UWF and achieve their academic goals.


Our vision is to provide exemplary academic support programs and services that enrich the learning experience of students within an engaging and welcoming environment.


 Individuality -  We understand that each student has different needs, backgrounds, values, and experiences. We will meet you where you are and support you as you work toward developing and meeting your goals. We will treat each student with respect and dignity.

 Improvement - We encourage each student to accept personal responsibility for the pursuit of your educational and career goals. We will connect you with colleagues within our unit, the university, and the greater community who have the experience & expertise to provide relevant information, guidance and support as you aspire for excellence.

Inquiry & Innovation  - We will develop relationships with colleagues, participate in professional enrichment opportunities, and model continuous learning processes so that we can stay aware of best practices and employ creative problem solving strategies to support you in your educational journey.

 Integrity - We will demonstrate integrity and honesty in all of our services and processes as we work to advocate for students’ needs across the institution. We will also represent the university in an ethical way and adhere to all policies, procedures, and applicable laws.
