Ashburn Center for Student Success

About the Ashburn Center for Student Success

Academic success in higher education has been linked to student participation in learning tasks. At Carolina University, we focus on preparing our students to take advantage of any future job opportunities that may arise. Our student success department can help with skill development, problem-solving, time management, etc. 

Named for Carolina University's former Provost, Dr. Beth Ashburn, the Ashburn Center for Student Success exists to help students succeed academically as a means to help them develop the critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills necessary for lifelong learning and success in their chosen fields. Dr. Ashburn has been connected to Carolina University since 1967, earning her undergraduate degree here and returning to teach following her graduate work at UNC Greensboro. Before Dr. Ashburn's retirement in 2020, she taught for more than 40 years and served as the university's Provost, taking great care to develop academic programs, strengthen relationships with other institutions, and position Carolina University for success.

The Ashburn Center for Student Success affords opportunities for both on-campus and online students throughout their journey at Carolina University.
