Retention Services

What We Believe

Mission Statement

The Office of Retention Services (formerly Owl Scholars) is designed to help students get connected to student support services. We work in collaboration with college services and individuals, community partners, and other stakeholders to help students manage the circumstances of academic life.

Values Statement

In pursuing our mission, and the mission of our institution as a whole, we are guided by a shared collection of values. Specifically, we value:

Communication: Engaging in collaborative planning and thoughtful reflection, with a spirit of inclusiveness from diverse programs across campus

Equity: Ensuring access to campus resources by striving to increase engagement with the students who most stand to benefit from the resources that maximize their chances of success.

Respect: Embracing the diversity of everyone, student autonomy, and a sense of community.

Service: Employing a holistic approach towards student success, while being intentional in our retention efforts.
