The Student Success Team provides you the tools and skills necessary to be both academically and personally successful as a student at HU. A Success Coordinator is assigned to each undergraduate student and provides individual student advising, both academic and holistic, throughout enrollment. We understand each student is unique and provide personal support to adapt to each student’s needs. The Success Coordinator guides students to explore academic goals and assists in course selection for their academic program. We also assist in connecting students to on-campus and community resources.
If you find yourself with a question but do not know who to ask or what resources to go to, Student Success is your first stop. No question is a bad question! Your Student Success Coordinator navigates with you as you complete each academic year at HU.
