Student Success

At TU, our students’ success is paramount. Our priority is ensuring that each student who matriculates at TU has the supports necessary to graduate in a timely fashion. TU faculty lead student engagement in the classroom and beyond. Our goal is to meet students where they are when they arrive at TU; some have a clear path to the future, while others are just beginning to craft their story. From recruiters and advisers to faculty and myriad student support professionals, our collective project is our students’ success. That is how we live the TU Commitment.
