ASU’s Educational Outreach and Student Services is redefining and expanding its leadership team’s roles to keep pace with the university’s rapid growth and evolving needs.

Educational Outreach and Student Services (EOSS) is charged with helping connect the university with the surrounding communities to provide access to higher education. The EOSS team also works to boost student success by helping with everything from residence hall life to student government. EOSS leaders will take on new or larger roles as the university not only provides educational access to more students, but continues to find new, innovative paths to learning.

“Our team’s mission is to prepare future students and families to enroll and succeed at the university, and to support academic success among a diverse student body,” said Dr. James Rund, ASU’s senior vice president for Educational Outreach and Student Services. “These changes will help us better leverage our talent and expand our capacity amid an evolving learning environment.”

EOSS provides comprehensive student services to support all current ASU students and the broader student community via our outreach programs.

“ASU’s initiatives in access, student services and ASU Preparatory Academy charter schools are rooted in ASU’s commitment to access, excellence and impact,” Rund said.
