College life brings about many changes for students, especially for those students juggling multiple roles such as supporting a family or working full time. Student Success Services is working hard at providing the highest quality student support including academic support and disability related services to help ensure that our students are successful in and out of the classroom. Our highly skilled staff assists students with needs associated with disability, interpersonal violence prevention, and personal and career counseling. We work very closely with the faculty to ensure an optimal learning environment for our students.

Students do not need an appointment to speak to our staff. We have an open door policy. To ensure that you are seen in a timely manner, feel free to make an appointment with Vanessa Williams, Director of Student Success Services at 870-875-7235.

Student Success Services provides campus wide training related to the Clery Act, Campus Save, Title IX, and the Violence Against Women Act legislation in an effort to provide a safe environment for our students, faculty, staff, and visitors. All faculty, staff, and new students are encouraged to complete a brief online course. To further promote awareness and prevention of sexually based crime, workshops are available and are free of charge.

Presentations can be scheduled upon request.  Presentations can be requested on such topics such as stress management, time management, managing anxiety, healthy relationships, understanding Title IX, etc.  Professors, students groups, faculty, and other staff are encouraged to utilize this service by contacting the Director of Student Success Services via email at vwilliams@southark.edu or calling 870-875-7235.  Some resources are listed below, but there are many more listed on both the Counseling and Disability Support Services pages.
