Why Student Success?

We know that when students feel loved and supported they are more likely to be successful. We recognize the role of family to the success of each student, and we see ourselves as an extension of the family for each student. The CEHD Student Success Center has a team of professionals who are attentive to the needs of students. The staff advocates on the behalf of our students to provide a better higher education experience.

The Student Success Center offers:

  • #MotivationMonday text messaging campaign. Once a week students will receive a motivational message from our office. Occasionally the college will send important announcements. To subscribe to this service, text CEHD to 81010.
  • Students Excelling in Education and Development Peer Mentoring Program
  • Success Appointments
  • CEHD 2010: Academic Discovery: CEHD 2010 is a semester-long course to assist students in establishing skills to become successful at the university through self discovery.
