What We Do

We provide support for academic advisors, who connect students with the college and help them navigate the maze of academic requirements on their path to graduation.

The connections and interactions between a student and their academic advisor are a key ingredient of student success

Improving RIC with Each Student

When we help students stay on track we:

  • enrich the overall academic community
  • improve graduation rates
  • strengthen the college's achievement of its mission

Each interaction, whether face-to-face or in the virtual environment, provides an opportunity for excellent student service and can make all the difference in a student's academic journey.
