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.
The Office of Career Development works in partnership with students to achieve their career objectives. We define our role as career consultants who provide the structure and services, including counseling and specific workshops, to help students focus their search, to target appropriate employers, to implement their job search strategies, and to build skills in self-marketing.
