Why uAspire?

I believe that higher education is both a public and a private good. As students and families bear an increasing share of the costs of college, they need experienced guides to ensure that post-secondary opportunities remain both attainable and affordable. Effective advising was pivotal for me in accessing and completing a bachelor’s degree with manageable debt, and I aim in my work to provide this support for today’s college students.
