Mission Statement
The Center for Student Success (CSS) will serve as the initial point of contact and referral for students with academic, social or financial needs. The CSS will serve University of Pikeville students by providing connections to resources and support services on campus, as well as the greater Pikeville community. The connections created through the CSS will assist students with the transition to university life and lead to solutions for most difficulties encountered in the first year. Connecting students with UPIKE faculty, staff and resources and assisting with providing solutions will lead to an increase in UPIKE students’ academic and personal success.

Guiding Principles of Student Success Advisors:
  • Represent the University of Pikeville in a positive and professional manner.
  • Promote freedom of choice in academic planning.
  • Teach students to take ownership for academic progress.
  • Create connections between students and student support services on campus.
  • Apply a solution-orientated strategy to strengthen students’ connections to the university and encourage academic and personal growth.
  • Utilize an array of methods to provide assigned students with timely communication, including but not limited to email, social media, phone, text and face-to-face meetings.
