The mission of the Office of Student Success Innovations is to close the opportunity gap among our students by engaging and empowering faculty, staff, and students to work collaboratively to develop innovations that increase educational equity and student success.
By fulfilling this mission, the Office of Student Success Innovations will:
1. Build collaborative relationshipsbetween faculty staff and students in support of student success and inclusive excellence.
2. Improve educational equity by closing the opportunity gap between underserved students and their more privileged peers.
