One of 17 Student Success Centers in the Nation

When our students succeed, our communities succeed. The Student Success Center ensures our students have the opportunity to explore their interests through high-quality education and guided career pathways. 

Direct Support

Students should not have to choose between their education and basic human needs. We use innovative programming to address housing and food insecurity and other challenges our students and community colleges may face.

Faculty and Staff Learning

We offer a variety of free online and in-person professional development opportunities for faculty and staff. These resources improve teaching practice and help educators provide better support to students.

Guided Pathways

Our institution-wide approach to streamline our students’ academic journey, so they complete their programs and begin their careers without wasting time or money.


With a comprehensive, holistic approach, we’ve established tenants like access and belonging so that all 58 of our community colleges offer culturally responsive learning environments.
