Student Success

At Anderson University, our goal is Student Success.  What does Student Success mean to us? It means:

  • each student connects with the right academic program to fulfill their dreams,
  • connects with individuals in and out of the classroom,
  • realizes God’s purpose for their lives, and
  • graduates equipped to live a life of faith and service.

Our Student Success initiatives start with SOAR, when students register for courses and officially become part of AU, continue through new student orientation and the First Year Experience, and then evolve as the student grows and matures.  In addition to campus life programming, we offer academic programs designed to prepare each student for success at AU.

Our goal is to equip AU students with the support and resources they need to be successful.
