Success Advocates

The Student Success Advocates (SSA) were created as an extension of the Student Success Coaches. The advocates represent the Student Success Coaches and promote overall student success on campus. They are active throughout campus and work closely with students to help the Student Success Center identify the needs of students in order to create activities, programs, workshops, and presentations to address their needs. Advocates also participate in Jaguar Days and New Student Orientation Days to assist prospective and new incoming students.

The Student Success Advocates goal is to be leaders who encourage, guide, and support UHV students. They are here to motivate and promote success at UHV by working with incoming and current students to thrive and have the best collegiate experience possible.

They provide academic support by creating custom presentations and events that give students tips on ways to be successful in college and in life. They are eager to help, and are always ready to assist their peers. The Student Success Advocates strive to be leaders on-campus and share information about various resources to help students be successful and guide them.
