The center exists as both a physical center at University Park as well as a broad-based commitment towards University-wide student support, retention, and graduation goals. The center partners with various University departments, programs, and initiatives to assist Penn State students in their academic pursuits while also promoting opportunities for meaningful campus connection and personal development. The Student Success Center supports undergraduate students and their advocates by contributing to a University-wide culture of care and assisting students as they strive toward academic goals and degree completion.
