Mission Statement

The Student Support Services Program at Odessa College has one primary goal, the academic success of all participants. The program facilitates participant success via one simple method, proactive and intensive individualized services. This method looks at the needs of the "whole student". Although our main emphasis is on academics, we also encourage students to attain the skills required to become a productive and successful member of society. We identify student's strengths and weaknesses so that strengths can be emphasized and weaknesses eliminated. We also believe it is important to build a sense of community between the students, campus, SSS program and the citizens of Odessa. A participant's academic success is the personal responsibility of the participant. However, SSS can be a strong and active partner in achieving academic success.
