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.
