Student Success Initiatives (formerly Student Success and Advising) creates opportunities for undergraduate students to thrive by providing a system of support to foster academic success, retention, and timely degree attainment. Driven by equitable outcomes for all students, innovation, and excellence, we assist students in achieving their academic and personal goals. Working collaboratively with the colleges and campus partners, a holistic student-centered approach is utilized to empower students to strive for academic achievement and individual growth.
