Who we are

Learn more about what the Gateway Student Success Center is and how we can help you succeed at Northern Arizona University.


Gateway is a welcoming and supportive environment which assists students in finding their sense of place by completing a rewarding and personally enriching University experience. We function as part of the interconnected NAU community, providing students with information, helpful tools, and resources to aid them in becoming self-directed and successful learners. We work to empower students to discover their potential and passion, to follow that passion, and to pursue a life of purpose. 


Guide. Connect. Achieve.


Our goals for Staff and Students are to:

  • Work in partnership with students on career and academic planning in ways that meet students where they are and help guide them toward achieving their goals.
  • Build collaborative partnerships with campus departments, students and community members to provide a seamless educational experience
  • Foster a diverse, respectful, inclusive campus culture
  • Empower students to become resilient and confident by navigating unfamiliar environments, adapting to change, and planning for their next steps
