Title III/SSC Planning

Welcome!  Here is a place (temporary, until we get set up in the correct location) to post meeting notes, updates, resources,  links, and anything else that will help us communicate and guide the Student Success Center through its new efforts.

Please be aware that these are mainly internal documents, often us directly with question on anything linked on this page.

For now, please email Diana Alves de Lima at to propose changes and add material to this page.  We will set up other editors shortly.
