Student Engagement and Success

The Office of Student Engagement and Success in the College of Health and Human Services is a learner-centered, relationship-based support program designed to help students reach their full academic potential. Because we believe student success must address the whole individual, initiatives are designed to stimulate growth opportunities for students in their academic, financial, social, occupational, physical and emotional lives.
