“Washington University is committed to the success of every student – in whatever way they define their own success – regardless of who they are or from where they come.”
-Anthony Tillman, Assistant Provost for Student Success
The Office of Student Success, an extension of the Office of the Provost, 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.
