Blueprints for Student Success

The Blueprints for Student Success website comes out of the Supporting Student Success research project which examines how colleges and universities support students to achieve their academic and personal goals. In our conversations with college and university students, we heard time and time again that students were unsure how to navigate the maze of offices and the countless webpages on their institutional website. Students didn’t know the difference between ‘Student Life’ and ‘Campus Life.’ What are ‘Student Affairs and Services’? Essentially, students wanted to understand whom they should turn to when they need help?

Since many of our team members are students, we understand the information you require to manage your personal, social and academic needs. Our aim is to provide students with the language and general information they require to develop their blueprint for college and university success. This website is not intended to supplant the great information provided on individual institutional websites.
