The Falcon Success Center (FSC) aims to improve the academic and liberal arts experience of our students and increase the University’s retention, progression, and graduation rates by offering a wide range of initiatives that focus on systems of support as well as identifying and addressing barriers to student success.

The FSC is also here to provide guidance for students as they begin to navigate their way through their college experience, leading them to the most helpful resources on campus.
