Excellence in Student Services Award

The Excellence in Student Services Award is designed to recognize an ACCSC-accredited institution that operates an outstanding student services program.

2016 Excellence in Student Services Award

In selecting the winner of the 2016 Excellence in Student Services Awards, ACCSC considered many factors including the comprehensive nature of the student services program, the significant and positive contributions of the student services program to students’ educational experience, and how the student services program supports the school’s mission and enhances student achievement outcomes.   This year, ACCSC selected Universal Technical Institute located in Lisle, Illinois as the winner of the 2016 Excellence in Student Services Award.

The Lisle campus of Universal Technical Institute (UTI-Lisle) puts the student experience at the center of every action it takes by providing a comprehensive and supportive environment where every student receives individualized attention and advice from the beginning of their academic career. Over the past few years, UTI-Lisle has increased its investment in the campus’ Peer Tutoring Program in response to the learning preferences and attitudes of its overwhelming millennial student population. As part of the school’s initiatives, students have the opportunity to participate in on-campus career fairs, company-specific recruiting meetings, lunch-and-learn programs with employers who are actively looking to hire, as well as opportunities to attend industry or association meetings. Additionally, in recognition of their service and sacrifice, UTI-Lisle also implemented several veteran-specific programs including designating a Veteran’s Coordinator who specializes in helping students navigate the state and federal resources available to them as a veteran, and a Veterans’ Resource Center featuring workstations and a lounge to provide an exclusive meeting place for former members of the military. As noted by UTI-Lisle, everyone at the school, not just advisors, considers themselves on the front lines of helping students overcome challenges to be successful.

Please join ACCSC in congratulating UTI-Lisle on being named the winner of the 2016 Excellence in Student Services Award
