The Student Experience Office (SEO) achieves our commitment to Make a Bigger Promise to students by providing conflict and conduct management services rooted in deep transformative educational approaches that enhance student learning, student persistence, and student-community development.

The SEO is a centralized hub for the College community and complements the developmental advising approach of the Centennial Advising and Pathways (CAPS) service model.  The SEO’s role in addressing conduct and complaint related issues will be achieved through a plethora of learning and skill development opportunities for both students and staff.  The SEO will provide support (advice, consultations, case review, etc.) to College stakeholders.
