Benedictine students have the ability to excel not only in the classroom and their chosen profession, but in the community as well. They must build interpersonal skills that will allow them to successfully lead others, work in teams and communicate and work efficiently and effectively with others. Our students live a balanced life while maintaining a high level of personal and academic excellence.
This is the essence of the John O. Whiteman Success Center.
The Student Success Center provides a clearing house for professional development opportunities. From workshops preparing students for their first interview, to networking opportunities with local government, business and community leaders, the Student Success Center is dedicated to preparing students for a job, a career and a lifetime of learning.
The goal of the Student Success Center is to help students identify their strengths and talents so they can effectively leverage them for a career in which they are passionate while also preparing them to give back to their community.
The Student Success Center is named after Arizona native John O. Whiteman, president of the Whiteman Foundation – a philanthropic organization that has a history of supporting education and arts initiatives – who provided the founding donation.
