Student Support Programs

Appalachian State University: As-U-R

As-U-R is a student support program focused on supporting students with executive function challenges (EFCs). Skills related to academic success such as organization, planning and setting priorities, getting starting and completing tasks, monitoring progress on tasks, and decision-making are referred to as executive function skills. Executive function challenges are defined as chronic difficulties in organizing, planning, and carrying out tasks and can make success in college-level academics much more difficult. Some college students with EFCs may have previously been assessed for or even diagnosed with ADHD or a learning disability, but others may not despite struggling with such tasks.
