Welcome to the Student Success Toolkit

This toolkit is intended to help you easily access available resources to achieve your academic goals. From mental health and wellbeing to student support groups to career planning, we’ve assembled this toolkit as your first point of reference which can be easily shared with your friends and fellow students. We hope you find this toolkit helpful.  

How does the toolkit work?

We collected feedback from faculty and staff about the issues students face most often in and outside the classroom. That feedback became the "tools" included here to help you to stay healthy and achieve your academic goals. If you or a fellow student are in need of support, follow one of the pathways below.
