Units and Programs

The Division of Academic Engagement and Student Achievement is made up of several units focused on student support and success at Washington State University.

The services and programming DAESA units offer to students includes but is not limited to:

  • Academic advising
  • Career preparation
  • Communications and writing skills development
  • Connections to campus and community services
  • Financial wellness services
  • Mentoring
  • Networking opportunities
  • Research engagement training and opportunities
  • Skill-building to boost academic confidence and team leadership and membership
  • Success courses and workshops

Many DAESA services and programming are geared toward the success of underrepresented/minority and low-income students.

DAESA is also responsible for managing courses including the university’s general education (University Common Requirements/UCORE) curriculum as well as suites of courses with the UNIV and WRIT prefixes.
