Recruiter and Academic Support Coordinator
Kingsborough Community College
When did you join ASAP?
I joined the ASAP program in April 2011.
What does your job entail on a daily basis?
On a daily basis I coordinate the activities for our Supplemental Instruction, which is similar to tutoring services, and I meet with students who are on probation.
What, in your opinion, makes ASAP unique?
Most would say ASAP is unique because it provides students with benefits like MetroCards and free textbooks, but I think the thing that makes ASAP stand out the most is the advisement services we provide our students with. Each student is assigned an adviser who works with them on an individual basis to make sure that they succeed in their educational endeavors.
Why do you think ASAP is important?
ASAP is important because it allows students that would have likely struggled in college to succeed. The benefits that the students receive allow them to solely focus on their education, which is a luxury that not all students are able to have.
