We in the University of Houston-Downtown's Division of Student Success and Student Life (3SL) seek to create a comprehensive and seamless experience for students from pre-college programs through graduation, and into their futures. We work with our campus and community partners to create a vibrant culture of collaboration, cooperation, and communication --  a culture that nurtures talent, develops future leaders and drives socioeconomic mobility.
We are a diverse community of professionals dispersed across offices and centers across campus.  We support all students by providing timely student services, and opportunities for engagement, connection, and a sense of belonging. We look forward to working with you!
