Center for Student Services and Success
The College of Health and Human Services is committed to your success - in the classroom, in the clinic, and in your life after WMU. We have redefined our student services offerings to simplify the process for you and to make it easier for you to find the help you need.
You can find the Center for Student Services and Success in the atrium of the CHHS building. (It is in the space that was previously an open computer lab.)
Our services fall into three main categories:
Staff and student ambassadors are available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST. Stop in if you're not quite sure where to find the help you need. Our staff can connect you to resources in the college or elsewhere on campus.
We're here to help prepare you for a career that is high in demand, high in meaning, high in satisfaction and unsurpassed in impact.
College tours are a chance for you to see our beautiful building, meet faculty and talk with our student ambassadors, who can answer your questions about our programs and talk to you about what it's like to be a student at WMU and at CHHS.
Success Coaching is about helping you manage your time to achieve academic and personal goals, identify personal strengths and build communication skills and connect with campus resources and services. An anatomy peer coach is another CHHS student who can guide you through anatomy simulations using the Anatomage Table.
Student Professional Development
Student Professional Development is all about career readiness. Featuring programs, workshops and events to develop professional skills that compliment your academic plan and prepare you for a career and life after college.
Meet our ambassadors
Our student ambassadors wear many hats. They meet with prospective students and their families, they work in our office, but first and foremost, they are students in our programs. Here are some "day in the life" videos of our fantastic student ambassadors to give you a taste of what to expect when you choose WMU:
