Student Success Center
Grounded in a strengths perspective and mattering framework, the Student Success Center fosters an inclusive, welcoming environment that promotes connection to comprehensive resources and collaborative coaching relationships to support students’ success and persistence to graduation. By helping mitigate barriers to persistence and achievement, the SSC seeks to empower students’ self-efficacy as they establish and pursue their personal, academic, and professional goals.
The Student Success Center is located just north of the Dining Commons on the walkway toward Davidian and Chan Shun Halls.
As a resident physician now training across the country in Boston, I can truly say the SSC helped me get where I am today. My experience with the SSC is quite larger than most; from being a tutee my first and second year, tutoring my last two years, and lastly working the front desk for three years. I have seen success stories walk out of the SSC door for four years straight and I am glad there was a location at PUC specifically made to help students better themselves!

Supporting students’ success is not a one-size-fits-all. I value having ongoing conversations with students to learn about who they are, the goals they are working toward, and what they need to help them succeed. I enjoy engaging with students and being a part of their PUC journey.
Student Success Center Coordinator
I love connecting with people and am passionate about helping them. That’s why I’m excited to be joining a team dedicated to helping our students achieve their academic goals. I know there are challenges, but I have seen God working at PUC, and I believe great things are happening in the Student Success Center.
Working with individual students to help discover their path to success at PUC is an exciting challenge for me. I interact with student athletes in the classroom, at the SSC and at their Pioneer games. Go Pioneers!
