Office of Student Success and Recruitment


The Office of Student Success and Recruitment is dedicated to helping you achieve academic success during your time in the College of Education. We are committed to providing you with top quality support, advice, resources, and comprehensive programs.

The P.O.W.E.R. (Promoting Opportunities With Educational Resources) program’s primary goal is to assist students in reaching beyond their full potential. POWER provides guidance and support that will cultivate greatness in their academic career. Regular meetings with academic advisors will impart proactive measures for students to develop a mentoring relationship and the opportunity to explore every aspect of their academic accomplishments.

The PALs program is designed to allow current students to become mentors to promote leadership and success.  Students have an opportunity to assist with recruitment and retention efforts, as well as to conduct workshops when needed.

The EDvantage Academic Achievement Program is designed to provide resources to help students who have been removed from academic probation. The program provides guidance to help students stay on track to graduate and provide opportunities for personal and professional development. Students will have an opportunity to achieve these goals by participating in advising sessions, workshops, and utilizing other resources in the College of Education and campus-wide. Students participating in the EDvantage Program will be required to meet with an advisor, complete a post-probation assessment, meet with their professors to complete two progress reports, and attend two workshops during the semester.
