Welcome to the College of Engineering Student Success Center!

Mission Statement
"To inform, engage, and encourage students to be self-directed in their educational planning process and overall academic success."

The Engineering Student Success Center provides key services via three offices (Academic Advising, Leadership and Diversity, and K-12 Outreach and Recruitment) that work together within an inclusive environment to foster a sense of community among students, staff, and faculty. The Center provides outreach and recruitment activities, first-year experience programs for freshmen and incoming transfer students, mandatory academic advising by professional and peer advisors, tutoring resources, professional development activities, and career guidance. The Center is a one-stop-shop location where students can drop by to get help from professional staff for resolving any number of academic and non-academic issues. The Center directs its full efforts toward informing, engaging, and encouraging students to be self-directed in their educational planning process and overall academic success.

As part of the system-wide “Graduation Initiative”, the College of Engineering is highly focused on expanding its efforts to increase its graduation rates. This Center’s model of collaboration provides for shared resources and a collective vision so that both native and first-year transfer students can be fully served. As part of this “Graduation Initiative”, a progressive effort, geared toward developing an evidence-based student services culture, is directed by the Office of Engineering Educational Research & Assessment, which functions to collect and analyze data related to engineering student success and timely graduation.

Graduation begins today . . . with the Engineering Student Success Center!
