CARSS: A 'Grand Experiment' Boosting the Achievement of UAlbany Sci-Math Majors

ALBANY, N.Y. – The Center for Achievement, Retention and Student Success (CARSS) is a federally funded program at the University that represents a coordinated effort to effect a dramatic enhancement of recruitment and retention among students whose majors are in science and/or mathematics.

CARSS' goal is to extend the academic support services offered at UAlbany to a larger cohort of students with these majors and assist them in achieving their academic goals. The program offers a multitude of services geared toward developing academic excellence. The staff is committed to the overall well-being and success of its students, strives to create a positive and encouraging atmosphere for all students who use its services, and is free to all participants.

CARSS is directed by Professor of Chemistry Rabi Ann Musah, who teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses in organic chemistry and biochemistry, as well as sub-disciplines of these areas.
