As the definition of student success continues to expand beyond retention and graduation rates, its physical presence on many campuses is also beginning to sprawl. Ioanna Opidee delves into the topic in “How and why institutions are designing, marketing and funding student success centers on campus.”
Student success centers have been emerging for years, and the trend is expected to continue. For each school considering one, decisions involve how to structure and design the space, as well as how to integrate it into a larger student success strategy.
One of the most important—and perhaps challenging—aspects of establishing an effective student success center is getting students through the door. For this reason, it’s important to market the center well—actively avoiding or removing the stigma that can sometimes surround academic support (Opidee).
