Welcome to the ASPIRE homepage!

I am a CWC staff member and the coordinator for ASPIRE, a movement to support the retention and time-to-degree of African American/Black, Hispanic/Latino, and First Generation Students The CWC is devoted to making sure your UF experience is one where you feel welcome, heard, and supported as you strive to achieve and maintain academic success.

I know there are times when academic success is easier said than done. You may have endured the death of a loved one, an old trauma has resurfaced, or maybe you simply feel like an outcast on campus. Sometimes students are torn between personal home stressors and the demands of school. Perhaps the pressure is high to do well and you find yourself feeling unprepared with little confidence and nowhere safe to turn for support. On the other hand, you could be doing well and find that other people expect less of you. You may find that you feel you have to prove your intellect. Administrators, faculty, and staff may be feeling overwhelmed and uncertain how to support you.

I encourage you to look over our webpage and discover the many ways we can build a strong and positive relationship. If you don’t find any of our services appealing on this page, let me know that too. Perhaps you have discovered something I have not and we can fill in the gaps together. Feel free to send me an ( or give me a call to voice your concerns, seek support, or begin planning for the next event whether large or small!
