Second Year Success Program

The Second Year Success Program is a leadership program designed to help students navigate their second year on campus. As part of the program, students will participate in core workshops, self-selected experiences, self-reflection, identity exploration, career exploration, goal setting, and coaching.  

Please check back in Summer 2022 for the 2022-2023 cohort application.  If you are a second year student looking to get involved on campus, check out our other leadership program offerings, or sign up for an involvement advising appointment


I am a faculty or staff member and I want to get involved.  How do I do that?

Connecting with faculty and staff is a critical component of student retention and success, so your involvement is key.  Students in SYSP have an opportunity to request a faculty/staff mentor.  Mentors will help second year students progress through critical stages of development, assist in setting goals, and serve as a connection to the university.  You will be the students' resource and guide as they navigate the new and occasionally tumultuous world of focused exploration. If you are interested in being a program mentor, e-mail Liliana Gomez at
