CEP provides guidance and counseling support to students in all areas relevant to their persistence and eventual success on campus, including overall adjustment, academic advising, career selection and financial aid advisement. Particular emphasis is given to assisting students from backgrounds which are currently underrepresented at the University.
CEP promotes and develops opportunities and enrichment activities to help facilitate the educational and personal growth of students who participate in the program. It accomplishes these goals through its own organized activities as well as collaborative efforts involving other divisions within Student Affairs and offices throughout campus.
CEP supports the initiatives of the University in a cooperative effort through its outreach programs for pre-college students, the enhancement of community partnerships, and the recruitment of prospective undergraduate, graduate and professional students.
