Student Success Updates

As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance the student experience and align our services with best practices across our peer institutions, we are sharing some changes within our student services units.

To better connect our offices with their core missions and to reflect similar units at other universities, we have rebranded certain offices that provide important services to our students. All student services will continue to be offered by their respective offices. These changes will take effect immediately.

Health Disparities Education and Community Engagement (HDECE) is now Leadership and Service. This unit empowers students to become leaders and active contributors to their communities through community service and civic engagement. This unit also implements our QEP: Community Engaged Care. If you have questions about volunteering, GivePulse, Community Engagement, or leadership opportunities, you can find answers in the Center for Student Success (910 Madison Ave, Suite 105) or via email at [email protected].

Student Academic Support Services and Inclusion (SASSI) is now divided into four collaborative units across three areas:
