The Academic and Career Engagement (ACE) Program in the College of Health and Human Services provides our first year students with an environment that encourages academic success in the transition from high school to college. Through personalized academic and career coaching, this first-year experience program assists students with navigating academic and co-curricular resources, developing skills in active learning, reflection, and decision making, and exploring vast career options and alumni connections - all the while fostering a community of belonging and involvement within CHHS and UNH.
Benefits of the ACE Program
Members of the ACE Program participate in a semester long, two-credit ACE seminar. The seminar helps students learn about CHHS majors and explore career choices, goals, and the resources and opportunities available to students at UNH, such as academic guidance and support for your personal well-being.
Every CHHS student has an ACE peer mentor and an ACE academic coach, who are available to meet on a regular basis.
Academic Improvement Model (AIM)
The Academic Improvement Model (AIM) is an academic improvement program offered to CHHS students whose cumulative GPA falls below good academic standing (below a 2.00 GPA).
Students participating in AIM:
Become more self-aware as they work with an academic coach to review prior behaviors or roadblocks
Set, monitor, and evaluate realistic academic goals
Develop or strengthen navigation skills
Begin to improve their academic lives either through changes in major or GPA
