NAU’s Peak Performance program accolades
Our students and staff put forth their best effort each summer, ensuring the Peak Performance Summer Math Bridge Program creates and delivers quality support and resources to its participants. While we’re proud of our accomplishments as an organization and university effort, it’s reaffirming when third parties also recognize our efforts.

The challenges of being a new college student are complex and ever-evolving, and we will continue to set the bar higher and make further progress in our efforts to ease that transition for our future Lumberjacks!
