What is Launchpad?

The Launchpad Student Success Center is one location that focuses on first-year student advising, transition, career-readiness, and success with an additional emphasis on assisting any undecided/undeclared student with career and major exploration and selection.

Our Center and team are trained to identify and provide students with access to tools and resources on and off campus to help them in their transition to academic and college life at Tennessee Tech. Each academic advisor is TypeFocus certified to assist students with aligning their interests with career goals. Additionally, we partner with faculty to identify concerns with first-year students' academic success, course attendance and participation, and well-being to intervene early and often to help keep students on track to graduate.

Our Mission

The Launchpad Student Success Center is student-focused and welcomes all first-year, undecided students, and those students interested in health sciences, engineering, and nursing. We foster positive professional relationships between students, advisors, faculty, and staff; encourage academic exploration; and empower students to take ownership of their educational experiences.

We work collaboratively with all members of the campus community to ensure each student has a smooth transition and the direction needed to meet their goals.
