The Student Support Services Program (SSSP) is a small, community-oriented program funded by a federal TRIO grant from the U.S. Department of Education. SSSP is dedicated to working with students who are the first in their families to go to college and those who have overcome significant barriers to attend college.

Our program promotes academic success by providing students AdvisingPeer TutoringPeer MentoringCultural Enrichment Activities and Workshops. We affirm students' personal goals and career aspirations as they strive to dream, persevere and succeed in college and beyond. 

Program participants exhibit their leadership abilities by serving on our very own Student Leadership Board (SLB), and being active members of several campus clubs and organizations. Graduates of SSSP have traveled nationally and world-wide, attended top graduate school programs, and interned with influential non-profit and corporate organizations.
