Student Success Center

Welcome to the website for the new Student Success Center!  You can find us on the third floor of Law Hall.

The Student Success Center is a resource for all students.  We have brought together the offices of Academic Support and Disability Services along with several new staff members to provide student success coaches for all students and welcome students to visit us to talk about academic concerns, study plans, finding your place here at Cornell, or any questions you have and aren't sure where to start!

Brandi Shanata, Associate Director of Student Success, works with advising, the POSSE program, retention plans, and general student success coaching.

Chelsea Plunkett, Coordinator of Academic Support, works with students in areas related to academic support such as connecting students to tutors, meeting to discuss study strategies, and helping students with time management.

Carlos Nelson, Coordinator of Student Athlete Success, works with student athletes, athletic teams, and general academic support programming.
