Student Success Center at Claremont Graduate University

Who We Are

The Student Success Center (SSC) was established in the Fall of 2013. It provides students with an intellectually and stimulating supportive environment, offering an array of services that enhance the graduate student experience at CGU by developing the knowledge, skills, and capacities that enable students to flourish. Although the center is new, our goal is to serve as the nucleus that engages students, alumni, staff, and faculty in conversations that foster diversity, cultural sensitivity, and inclusivity, and student success. Such conversations will afford students opportunities for self-assessment in order to achieve academic success, professional and personal development, leadership development, and collaborative work.
