Center of


The Falcons Academic Center of Excellence (FACE) is positioned to engage

in a paradigm shift

to a more comprehensive and holistic model that removes silos and

creates an environment

that is more conducive

to students’ needs.

Academic success is a priority. Many students are

experiencing new and different challenges which develop into barriers that affect retention,

progression, and graduation. The Falcons Academic Center of Excellence aims to remove those barriers and guide students on a path of academic, personal, and professional success.

This guidance includes ensuring students are aware of academic program requirements, important dates, declaring a major, prerequisites/corequisites for courses, necessary student forms, and institutional policies and procedures.

Additionally, FACE believes student success depends not only on academic performance, but

also on access to the tools and resources necessary to thrive! FACE is dedicated to equipping

our students for a successful matriculation through the halls of Simmons College of Kentucky!
