About Student Success

Student Success provides vision and leadership to university units and programs that focus on retention, persistence, and graduation. Although we track retention and graduation rates as metrics of institutional success, we would argue that student success is nuanced and individualized. In order to serve students holistically, we work to remove barriers in order to achieve broader social justice and equity goals. We aim to meet students where they are by taking a developmental approach to help students learn and grow.

We collaborate extensively with the Colleges, the Graduate School, Student Life, Institutional Research, and Enrollment Management to create a campus culture where every student can thrive.


Student Success designs and provides holistic, inclusive, research-based, and student-centered programs to enrich and support K-State students as they strive to achieve their academic, personal, and career goals.


All students at Kansas State University will have access to institutional support and enrichment opportunities to achieve their personal, academic, and career goals.
