Campus and Community Resources for Students

A key component of the work in Student Affairs is to provide students with information and referrals to campus, crisis and community resources.  Student Affairs is able to offer many resources to students of concern including medical and mental health services; access to the Student Affairs food pantry (short term) and long term referrals; spiritual development; one time – emergency financial assistance; short term transportation assistance; conflict resolution and other behavioral interventions. 

Advising Support for Students

Center for Student SuccessThe Center for Student Success (CSS) was formed in early 2022 to provide one-stop shop support to students with the goal of increasing success, persistence, and completion rates. Under the leadership of Dr. Reginald Stroble, the CSS aims to take a case-management approach to student success and provide holistic wrap around supports by creating an integrated team of staff in advising, enrollment services, and financial aid therefore enhancing the student experience and improving retention and completion rates. The CSS is focused on a culture of collaboration, proactive and intentionally intrusive holistic advising and support for students.
