Vice President for Student Life

Archived Initiatives

University Success Center

A university wide workgroup collaborated to create a simpler organizational structure that supports a shared commitment to student success. Efforts resulted in the merger of academic program offerings, centralized tutoring services and the creation of a University Success Center in Holton Hall. These efforts further developed a clear path to graduation for students and those supporting them across the university.
