First Year Experience

Mission Statement

Our goal is to assist students at UCCS in their academic and personal goals. We know that students who feel more connected on campus and supported by faculty/staff perform better academically and are more satisfied with their overall experience. We are here to help make sure students are working effectively toward their goals.

Our hope is to:

  • teach and assist with academic skill development
  • provide students with the resources and ways to get connected to their campus community
  • support faculty and staff in retention initiatives for first year students
  • promote the positive growth and development of UCCS students


Appointments, face covers, and a six-foot distance between people are required for all in-person meetings.
