The Virginia State University Academic Center for Excellence takes pride in providing the building blocks and tools necessary for our students to achieve academic and professional greatness.

Our “love army” of support for our students, with close relationships that develop between professors and students, in academic settings, as well as through our advising programs, continue to preserve our credibility as Virginia’s Opportunity University.  The Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) emerged as an innovative hub where Trojans “embrace and engage in transformative educational opportunities throughout their academic journey.”

ACE is a full-service center structured to provide you with the sustenance and resources necessary to promote character building, academic excellence and career goal achievements.  ACE advisors are here to support and encourage you every step of the way. The uniquely designed space includes state-of-the-art technology, private pods for individual studying and meeting space for group collaborations. 

From your freshman experience, to life after receiving your degree, ACE will be instrumental in preparing you to not only be a productive member of society, but a competitive contender in any career environment. 


The Academic Center for Excellence empowers students to embrace and engage in transformative educational opportunities throughout their academic journey. 


The vision is for all Trojans to be reflective, self-valuing, community-centered scholars committed to transforming their lives and the lives of others.
