Who are we?

Student success is our priority. Our CEHD student success advisors and graduate assistants works with you to ensure you have what you need to reach your full potential. Our student success advisor is available to meet with you to set goals and get on track. You can meet with the advisor to set personal and academic goals, address factors impacting academic performance, get connected to campus and community resources, or receive help navigating emergency situations, hardships, account holds, or finances. Our success advisor can also offer resources for study and test-taking strategies, time management, self-care, and motivation for students who request assistance.

Who can utilize our services? All CEHD undergraduate students.

My advisors made me feel like I belong and that I made the right decision to be a Bronco.
