Neighborhood Student Success Collaborative

Student Success

The Neighborhood Engagement Centers are staffed and supported by a variety of Neighborhood Student Success Collaborative (NSSC) staff including a Neighborhood Director, Academic Advisors and other professionals who care deeply about Spartan students and are able to connect them with the resources they need.

Neighborhood Academic Advisors specifically assist and guide students to the selection of a major, monitor their academic progress, provide academic advising, guide students toward activities that are designed to enhance their personal and professional growth, and make appropriate referrals to enable students to take advantage of other resources and services the university offers. NSSC staff are readily accessible in the Neighborhood Engagement Centers.
