The Northern Kentucky University Student Success Center is designed to be an engaging student-centered environment located in a vibrant, collective space.
The departments with the most direct impact on a student’s academic success need to work together and collaborate in order to most successfully address students’ academic, business and financial issues. By addressing these needs in the most expert-way possible, a higher percentage of students will find greater success and ultimately result in higher attendance rates for the University. To create such an environment to meet student’s needs, this Student Success Center combines the Bursar’s office, Financial Aid offices and the Registrar’s offices into what is most commonly recognized as a University’s One-Stop Center. It also creates a physical link between the central student advisory offices and career development offices that already have a strong work-related synergy. Combined with an IT “Genius Bar” and group study spaces, this Student Success Center will create a communicative and educationally-focused space where all of the University’s students may gather to more fully engage in their learning and collegiate experience.
