FJ Management Center for Student Success
In 2014, through a generous donation from the Call Family Foundation, we opened the FJ Management Center for Student Success. The center brings together various student services, including undergraduate advising and career development under one organizational structure and in one physical space to create a "one-stop-shop" for students seeking academic and career advising.
The undergraduate academic advising team is one of the strongest on campus, with several advisors having been recognized at the university, regional, and national level. The career development team meets with students in one-on-one and group settings to prepare them for life after graduation.
The FJM Center was a pioneer in the use of an online appointment manager system, which allows students to make an appointment with their academic or career advisors from the convenience of their phone. This system has increased convenience for students, and greatly increased effectiveness and efficiency for the student/advisor meetings by providing advisors with data about the students prior to the meeting. The entire university now uses the online appointment manager system.
