Why uAspire?

My experiences as a first-generation college student from an under-resourced community, and work in the recruitment and retention of underserved communities into higher education, have shown how much of a difference support in navigating college applications and institutions can make. I choose to work at uAspire because I believe in the mission of alleviating college access barriers and empowering students to find an affordable pathway to and through college!
