Office of Student Success

Transition.  Persistence.  Success.

The Office of Student Success coordinates strategic programs, initiatives, and outreach efforts, all designed to support student transition, persistence, and success. Student Success staff recognize that "student success" is defined in a number of ways and attempts to address all aspects of college student development (academic, social, personal, etc.). The work of the Student Success Team can be categorized into one of the three distinct, interconnected realms it oversees: 

  • The First-Year Experience
  • Parent and Family Programs
  • Student Progress and Success Initiatives

The office is concerned with keeping students continuously enrolled through completion and with contributing to the broader mission of producing in a timely fashion graduates who are capable, independent, well-rounded, and who are prepared to launch into society and into well-paying careers.

From helping first-year students transition during annual events such as Welcome Weekend to monitoring grades and reaching out to at-risk students near mid-terms each semester, the office is continually undergoing efforts to help keep students on-track.
