Many students have learning styles that respond well to the structure and support Mentors can provide.

We believe students experience higher levels of academic success when they take charge of their own learning. Therefore, our primary objective is to facilitate academic success while encouraging students to become independent learners.
The Writing and Academic Support Center is staffed by professional and peer tutors who work with students on a variety of academic skills and who work closely with faculty and staff to encourage students to excel in their academic goals.
