Partnering for Student Success

Our goal is the same: student success

Empower your student to be a strong self-advocate and solve problems on their own

  • Encourage them to learn to identify and use available resources (e.g., faculty, campus offices)
  • Ask them questions (e.g., who could you talk with?), as opposed to providing answers

We’re here as a resource for you – if you’re not sure how to help or are really concerned, call or e-mail us
