Student Success Advocates are full-time staff who provide personalized support and coaching to help you meet goals and overcome challenges. We serve as your on-campus advocate and accountability partners for academic success. We also work closely alongside our campus partners to connect you to the appropriate resources. Please note that Student Success Advocates do not provide counseling or therapy and are not a confidential campus resource.
