About Student Success Programs

Student Success Programs is a suite of interconnected programs under Purdue's division of Teaching and Learning. With programs designed for varying populations and demographics, we span the bridge of students' experience at Purdue from orientation and transition, access and retention, and academic support. Our ultimate goal is to help Boilermakers arrive, thrive, and graduate on time.

Our Mission

Student Success Programs empower students to embrace a sense of lifelong learning by providing nationally-recognized, student-centered college success initiatives and services.

The department’s various interconnected programs assist students in progressive stages of development. Collectively and individually, our programs aim to increase student degree completion. We also aim to empower students in their future employment or study, dedicated citizenship, and responsible leadership in the state, nation and world.
