Student Services and Student 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.

Advisors, DEI staff, and student ambassadors are available in the CHHS Student Engagement Center (in the atrium, near the grand staircase) Monday through Friday. 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.

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:

With Goal Scaling Solutions, you can succeed by visualizing your progress and communicating with your program mentors about your goal progress. GSS can be accessed online or via our app, both of which are HIPAA and FERPA protected.

Enroll in the research study.
