Office of the Vice President
The Office for Student Success at the University of Kentucky is committed to designing and delivering unparalleled student services. We are comprised of more than four hundred professional staff and faculty across nearly two dozen units that engage students from the time of early college outreach to graduation and beyond. Our diverse teams strive to put students first in everything they do, supporting them in living a life of meaning and purpose.
The Office of Vice President for Student Success (OVPSS) is the support structure through which the work of our units is organized. OVPSS is comprised of central functions that serve all parts of Student Success as well as the leads of five groupings of our units referred to as Student Success Areas: Dean of Students, Enrollment Management, Student Development and Support, Student Excellence and Engagement, and Student Well-Being.
We encourage you to explore our OVPSS leadership directory and Student Success organization chart contained on this page and reach out to us if we can support you as a prospective or current student, family member, or colleague.
Student Success will, from the time of early college outreach to graduation and beyond, support students in living a life of meaning and purpose. From a student-centered framework, our practice will be grounded in peer-reviewed literature, national best practices, and data-informed decision making. Collaborating with the campus and community, Student Success will work through an equitable, holistic and inclusive lens, to support a diverse community of learners in achieving success.
