The University of California, Riverside (UCR) proposes to develop the Student Success Center (herein referred to as project or proposed project), a new 3- to 4- story facility with a maximum building capacity of 80,000 gross square feet (gsf). The project would support the UCR academic mission through its explicit focus on "student success": academic achievement, retention, and timely graduation for students from all backgrounds by providing general assignment classrooms, and student life support spaces in the campus academic core. The project would accomplish these goals by providing three elements essential to student success: (1) general assignment classrooms designed for modern pedagogy and technology, (2) multipurpose student life spaces for use by student organizations and areas for scholarly activity such as tutoring, mentoring, and study, and (3) (shelled) dining services venue. General assignment classroom seats would be provided by constructing lecture halls, and classrooms designed for flexible teaching configurations. These seats represent replacement of current capacity (approximately 620 seats) that would be lost at the end of an off-campus lease at the University Village (1201 University Avenue, Riverside, California) in late 2021 . The instructional space would be built to support advances in higher education pedagogy. The project would also provide multipurpose spaces for studying and student organization events and meetings. Site improvements include hardscaping, landscaping, and improvements to emergency access routes along existing pathways.
