The Becker Academic Engagement Success Center (AeSC) – named after alumni W. Marston “Marty” and Katherine Becker – supports students through peer-assisted tutoring, mentoring and career coaching, equipping them with real-world professional soft and hard skills so they have a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
To ensure academic success, the AeSC is composed of three key initiatives: Niedermeyer Scholars, the Business Communications Center (BCC), and student-led tutoring. Tynetta Johnson, AeSC program director, envisions the Center expanding its services and acting as a hub for all business students.
“The students are loving the new space in the Academic engagement Success Center at Reynolds Hall,” she said. “We want to create a place where students can study, receive peer and professional success coaching, and explore new ways they can get involved in the business college.”
AeSC Graduate Assistant Ryan Robinson helps Johnson manage day-to-day tasks and shares the Center’s mission.
“During my time as an undergraduate student, it helped me succeed in my classes and also allowed me to help other students excel in their academic endeavors,” Robinson said.”The AeSC is a unique, one-of-a-kind department within Chambers College and I would not be the same person I am without it.”
