BASE Mission & Vision

Our purpose is to promote student retention by providing both academic and practical assistance for all students, dedicating time and resources to helping at-risk students, and developing student writing and speaking skills in order to help prepare them for continuing education or future employment.

We accomplish our mission by focusing on the quality of student interactions rather than the quantity, integrating the innovative use of technology in our center, fostering a casual, welcoming environment, continually developing positive relationships with faculty, maintaining mutually beneficial associations with the Writing Center and Speaking Center, seeking feedback from those we serve, and moving forward with creative, student-centered ideas.

We also serve to further the vision and mission of the College of Business. 

To be known throughout the Southern Miss campus as a successful center dedicated to helping all students, but with a specific focus on College of Business students.
