Genesee Community College’s $6.1 million Student Success Center–located on its Batavia campus in Genesee County–has opened.
The center helps GCC introduce its new student success coaching model, which focuses on providing efficient enrollment and student services with a new level of intentional engagement that is focused on students’ academic and personal success, college officials said Monday.
The center is 18,478 square feet and is connected to the existing college.
Shelitha Williams, associate vice president for student success, is managing the overall program.
“The Student Success Center is truly a transformational opportunity on so many levels,” she said. “On a personal level, the success coaches will guide new or returning students through their academic journey to their own individual success. At the college level, Genesee Community College is once again embracing educational innovation and making it part of our everyday process.”
The fall semester starts on Aug. 21.
