The mission of the Neighborhood Student Success Collaborative (NSSC) is to help undergraduate students achieve their academic goals at Michigan State University. Our motto is "Achieving success through academic progress." We believe it is important to empower each student with the knowledge, resources and skills that will lead to academic success and a lifelong desire to learn inside and outside the classroom. Students are encouraged to explore and investigate areas of interest as well as engage in self-discovery to determine the most suitable academic major. Our efforts are intended to promote self-sufficiency, self-responsibility and self-development which will enable students to achieve academic, career and life goals long after their days on the MSU campus have passed.
