Our Purpose: Student Success

Our programs, services, and staff are dedicated to student success. Student success includes supporting students’ intellectual development and achievement as well as holistic forms of success, including building confidence, encouraging a sense of belonging, and activating their resilience.  Our cross division team of academic affairs and student affairs professionals work collaboratively with partners throughout campus to address student success needs.
