Mission & Goals

The mission of the Student Success Programs is to increase retention and graduation of students who are first generation, low-income, or students who have a documented disability. We work to foster an institutional climate supportive of the success of a diverse group of students who have an academic need by providing educational opportunities, giving attention to individual needs, and emphasizing academic excellence.
