Student Success Hub

The aim of the Student Success Hub is to build institutional collaborations in student success and bring insights and best practices by connecting campus innovators, advisors, faculty, and students in order to reduce equity gaps for our at-promise students and build a campus where every student can feel they belong.  
The Hub is: 

  • A space in Langley Hall for students to find resources, programming, and advising 
  • A network of campus collaborators dedicated to student success
