Center For Student Success and Engagement (CSSE)

Suzanne E. Hunger, Associate Dean

The Center for Student Success and Engagement integrates multiple services, offices, and programs, providing rich resources to enhance success, engagement, and empowerment of all MCLA students. Connections with the First Year Experience program and Peer Advisors strengthen our ability to identify and appropriately offer support, especially in the crucial first weeks of college life. Enrichment programs such as mentoring, major exploration, and life after MCLA deepen the undergraduate experience.
