The philosophy of the Office of Student Success is to always do what is in the best interest of the student. We accomplish this by helping every student make choices that will lead to their success. Our staff offers to help students in any way possible – educational, personal or otherwise.
We are the office that assists students with their questions and concerns. Each new student has three people on campus assigned to him/her:
- An academic adviser
- A student success director
- An orientation mentor
The office has been nationally recognized as a leader in monitoring student issues on campus and intervening in the most appropriate manner. The cutting edge model used on our campus to assist students to persevere and graduate is sought after around the country by colleges and universities. Since the office was created in 2008, retention has increased 6%, while the national average for private institutions over the same period rose just 2%.
