Student Success and Inclusion


Student Success and Inclusion

The Office of Student Success and Inclusion’s mission is to be a “college compass” as students journey through their academic or career track. This office offers a variety of crucial services and resources specific to ensuring students persist, graduate, and join the workforce or transfer to a four-year university. The SSI is equally committed to an inclusive campus where all students are given equal and equitable access to opportunities for success.

 

Career Coach

Career Coach is an online tool to help students discover majors and in-demand careers and education based on their interests. A career assessment helps students learn about themselves and provides interest-based career suggestions. Students are able to browse careers and see relevant data regarding wages, employment, and necessary training. Career Coach provides information on available programs that lead to the careers they wish to pursue. Veterans may use Career Coach to find civilian careers related to their military occupation. Career Coach offers an easy-to-use resumé builder to help students create professional resumés.

 

Inclusivity

Angelina College strives to create a culture of inclusivity which holds that every person has the right to lifelong learning. This culture is transformatory, democratic, and views diversity as a distinct strength and a valuable resource for all students. In order to provide students with a quality education, opportunities to strengthen global competency skills needed for an increasingly diverse, global, and fast-paced workforce must be readily available. The Office of Student Success and Inclusion seeks to produce and guide policy and practices focused on equality, equity, and success for all students so they may reach their full potential.

 

Student Access Services

The Office of Student Success and Inclusion is committed to providing services and resources to students who need them to ensure that barriers to success are minimized for students. The SAS offers an array of services for students with more unique needs including, but not limited to: finding community resources; obtaining financial assistance for emergencies; targeted programming for traditionally underserved student populations; and providing accommodations.

 

Tutoring Center

The Student Tutoring and Access Center (STAC) is available to all Angelina College students, free of charge, and can assist students in finding subject-specific tutoring services. The center is located on the second floor of the library.

 

New Student Orientation

Angelina College offers several New Student Orientation pathways to meet the needs of students. All students are encouraged to first complete New Student Orientation online.

Completing online orientation familiarizes students with campus resources and answers many questions students may have.

After completing the orientation online, students should check their AC student email account for any additional orientation requirements and may contact the Office of Student Success and Inclusion to schedule an appointment for registration.
