Welcome to the office of Student Academic Support and Retention at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. This office unites under one roof the services that undergraduate students might need to help them achieve academic success. All SASR offices are located in the D.F. Lowry Building, just north of the water feature, or in Jacobs Hall, to the east. We invite you to visit both buildings to see what our services have to offer you. We are dedicated to enhancing student success, and we would love to see you!
