Always researching, we are not just interested in, "What's Next?" but what makes sense in a higher education landscape and what will be valuable to students and instructors on our campus. Our goals are to find solutions that are accessible, equitable, and scalable.

Some of the key strategic priorities accomplished by ATS include:

  • Producing personnel development plans for leadership, staff, student assistant and internships
