Network for Student Success
The Network for Student Success provides support teams from diverse backgrounds committed
to helping students succeed academically, socially, emotionally, and professionally.
The Network for Student Success is created from the KSU Paulding Site's Partnership
with the Federal Work Study Program, and provides KSU students with the opportunity
to take part in a professional success coaching and peer-coaching program that is
designed to promote student success. Its mission is to increase student engagement,
academic achievement, retention, graduation, and strengthen a campus culture focused
on student success through offering tools and tips to university stake-holders who
interact with students everyday. For more information on the Federal Work Study Program

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background,
or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can
be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."
- Nelson Mandela
