Student Success

Mission

The Office of Student Success introduces students to their college experience by providing a collegial and academically enriched environment. As the point of entry for freshmen and incoming transfers, our support programs facilitate ongoing student engagement while promoting intellectual growth and development. The Office of Student Success encourages social integration through a variety of programs designed to assist students in succeeding during their DSU experience, as they progress toward graduation.

Housed on the second floor of the William C. Jason Library, our programs are formed to support students academic needs and to help them succeed during their freshman year and beyond.
