The Student Academic Success Initiative (SASI) is a program that was started in 2008 by President Tim Hall to encourage student engagement within the academic community and to foster faculty-student interactions outside of the classroom. Each year, between 30-40 proposals totaling approximately $60,000 are funded by SASI.
Proposals are called for during the spring semester by the Faculty Senate. Successful proposals are notified before the end of spring semester, and funds are available after July 1. All funds must be spend during the fiscal year (July 1 - June 30). A final summary of the funded project's results is due by the end of the academic year.
