Our Mission

The Center for Student Success promotes student learning and an enriched MSU student experience by providing services, programs, and resources that:

  • assist the student with his or her transition into university life;
  • aid the student's decision-making, especially during the freshman year; and

The Center's strategic goals are to:

  • offer services, programs, and classes that assist the student's transition to MSU;
  • support student academic planning and progress through high-quality academic advising and timely feedback;
  • provide informative and engaging first-year classes and programs;
  • provide academic support for all students;
  • develop programs and take actions that are informed by analyses of relevant data; and
  • engage the university in the support of students in their progress toward graduation.
