OASES Marks 20 Years of Serving Adult Learners
The Office of Adult Students and Evening Services (OASES) is celebrating 20 years of recruiting and retaining a diverse, adult student population. The office provides provides advising, mentoring, and scholarships to enrolled adult, evening, and weekend students.
Janet Daniel, founding director of the office, stated OASES’s existence resulted from the vision of then-Provost Philip L. Dubois. "UNC Charlotte, as the Charlotte Center, can trace its existence to serving adult students who were returning home following World War II,” said Daniel. "Dr. Dubois recognized the need for the University to again focus on these adult learners through a dedicated office. Nontraditional students often face challenges beyond those of regular college-aged students, and we provide an array of services to assist them."
OASES advises roughly 1,500 new, transfer or re-entry adult students with more than 400 of them receiving services in the evening.
