Alignment with the University Strategic Plan

Goal 1: Develop and maintain a curricular and co-curricular environment that prepares students for participation in a global society and is responsive to workforce needs.

  • The ECS Student Success Center in collaboration with the Student Success Team will focus on streamlining and enhancing the advising experience for freshman and sophomore students. Our emphasis involves an advising system that focuses on the holistic development of ECS students.

Goal 2: Improve student persistence, increase graduation rates University wide, and narrow the achievement gap for underrepresented students.
