Center for Student Engagement and Success

Visit CSES in the NiCHEThe Center for Student Engagement and Success (CSES) is a first-stop, one-stop resource for students on campus who need help and not sure where to go or who to contact.  Designed to bolster student success, CSES provides timely and helpful resources. If we cannot provide direct support, we will work with you to locate an office or department on campus that can help with specialized knowledge, services, and skills to meet your needs.  CSES is designed to connect, coordinate, and integrate campus services, resources, programs, and offices to improve your educational quality so that you have a smooth transition from orientation all the way through graduation.

CSES Serves You

CSES Peer Leaders are student mentors who can answer everyday questions about your academics, personal life, and professional success. CSES administrative staff members can assist in coordinating services as complex as helping you map an individual success plan for your four years at Mount St. Mary’s University. CSES’ unique position is intended to help you access and integrate campus resources to enhance your student experience.

Questions that can be directed to CSES staff vary, but include things like:

  • What resources are available to help me balance athletics and school?

  • Where do I go if I need tutoring or writing services?

  • Who do I talk to about getting a job or internship?

  • I think I want to transfer/drop out – what do I do now?

  • What kinds of clubs/activities are happening at the Mount?

  • Which major should I choose?

  • I’m having trouble with a friend/relationship/family – who can I talk to?
