About CCSS

Mission and Vision                                                                                                      The Center for College Student Success (CCSS) provides early academic exposure, transition support, and ongoing advising and resources to students in the College, especially those who are first in their family to attend college, from lower-income or under-resourced backgrounds, or who may be undocumented. Advisers in CCSS strive to help students navigate campus resources and foster an inclusive and supportive campus community that facilitates student success.

CCSS Student Advisory Board                                                                                 The CCSS Student Advisory Board is comprised of ten students in the College; two representatives from each class year, and one each representing the Socioeconomic Diversity Alliance and the Quest Scholars Network.  The Board works closely with CCSS advisers to identify areas of interest or concern and to plan programming to help address them.
