Academic Success Resources
Resources for Student Success
While CEHD’s office of Student and Academic Affairs acknowledges that our students lead complicated lives with a variety of identities occurring in tandem to their scholarship, we also understand that for students to reach their full potential they must foster growth beyond their classroom experiences. The university offers plenty of offices and resources that can help support this growth for your experiences in the classroom and beyond.
