The Office of Student Development and Success (OSDS) helps College of Engineering students develop a passion and sense of pride for their Lee College of Engineering education and chosen professions. Through advising and participation in our programs, our students become self-motivated and independent learners, problem solvers, and professionals.
All OSDS faculty have worked as practicing engineers and engineering leaders. Many are registered Professional Engineers, and each brings real-world experience and perspective to the classroom as well as to all interactions with students.

New and future students often have questions about university life. During the Summer of 2020 we held Town Hall meetings and Lunch & Learn sessions with our advisors and interested new students and their families.

OSDS Academic Advising

Until they successfully complete the freshman curriculum and are moved to their academic departments, College of Engineering students are advised in OSDS. All OSDS Academic Advisors are available to meet with students during office hours and by appointment. While OSDS will not currently hold all advising meetings face-to-face, we are still available to support students along their academic journey. Students who need additional help during registration may schedule an appointment through Connect
