To foster a full and fulfilling, enriching and engaging experience for each and every Washington University student

The Office of Student Success was launched in 2016 under the leadership of Assistant Provost Anthony Tillman.

An extension of the Office of the Provost, the Office for Student Success, creates an infrastructure of support to assist Washington University students with their transition to and through college. The office uses a principled approach to enhance the on-campus experience of all students in the following four areas:

  • Creating experiential equity
  • Harnessing cultural wealth
  • Utilizing high-impact educational practices
  • Building a framework for student success

We take an expansive view of student success, realizing that success on both the academic and non-academic fronts impact and inform each other. We use this understanding to guide our approach to the various programs and initiatives within our diverse portfolio.
