Welcome! My name is Jacquelyn Forté, and I am the Director of Student Support Services. As an educational professional at CSU Stanislaus, I have the opportunity to serve students for over 14 years. My expertise is in line with my core values of helping others succeed: admissions, student services, transfer requirements, education planning, financial aid, life skills, and health.

I embrace the challenges many students face, and appreciate the diversity CSU Stanislaus has to offer. My Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Science, Master of Science  degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, and Doctorate of Education is in Education Leadership. My educational background has helped me to problem solve while my professional experience has culminated into a pathway of improving students'€™ academic potential.

I encourage you to visit Student Support Services, located in MSR 230, to learn ways to create a roadmap to your future.

Hi! My name is Jesus Verdugo, but most of the time people refer to me as Chuy. I am very excited to continue to work with Student Support Services and will give my upmost dedication to make this a wonderful experience for all of you! I graduated from Patterson High and came to CSU Stanislaus as an Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) admit in 2000. I am a former EOP, Summer Bridge, and SSS student and have worked in multiple areas on campus both as a student and as a professional. The advisors in EOP were my link to SSS. I became an SSS student in 2002 and later graduated from CSU Stanislaus with a B.A. in Spanish.

I myself am a first generation, low-income, "Latina" college student and if I did it, so can you! Si Se Puede! Truly believe in yourself and others will begin to do the same. Shortly after, you will see many doors open for you with wonderful opportunities. I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your career goals.
