Success Center

The mission of the Dr. J.W. Upright Success Center is to provide College-based resources and support services to assist students in achieving their academic, professional, and personal goals during their time at Clarkson College. The Success Center operates under the philosophy that students, regardless of previous success, can and should become better learners.

Some of the major services offered by the Success Center include: learning styles assessment, counseling, academic skill development, tutoring, mentoring, career planning and job postings. These are all free services to students. Counseling is also available off-campus both within the Omaha area as well as within the vicinity of where the student lives if outside the Omaha area through the College’s partnership with Arbor Family Counseling. With respect to these off-site counseling services, students are eligible for three free counseling sessions per concern/per year. To make an appointment, contact Arbor Family Counseling at 1.800.922.7379. If a student needs to speak to someone immediately, whether in crisis or for a request for a phone consultation, counselors are available 24 hours a day by calling 1.800.922.7379. This is also a service provided through the College’s partnership with Arbor Family Counseling.

The Success Center, located on the second floor of the Student Center, also provides individual and group study space and has five computers available for students to use. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the Success Center services throughout their collegiate careers.
