ASPIRE - Welcome to the ASPIRE page!
The ASPIRE program was originally created as an enrichment program targeting the needs of African/Black American students in support of achieving academic success. The program was developed in response to a call by the Vice President of Student Affairs to offer proactive programming to counter the adverse effects of the One Florida initiative. Former Counseling Center director, Dr. Jaquie Resnick, along with other clinical faculty, wrote a grant proposal to address how the Counseling Center might meet this need, and ASPIRE was the result. During the 2005-2006 academic year, the ASPIRE program was expanded to address the needs of Hispanic/Latino(a) American students and later the First Generation student population. To date, the ASPIRE program provides outreach and seeks to build strong collaborative relationships.
We are providing consultation services and will serve as a liaison to student groups, departments, faculty and staff.
