In June 2012, Dr. Charles Robbins, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education and Dean of the Undergraduate Colleges, assembled a group of approximately twenty professional staff with the goal of identifying and addressing issues that impact student academic success. Through their work, this Academic Success Team was instrumental in developing the initiative of the Academic Success and Tutoring Center (ASTC).
A Director and Assistant Director of the Center were selected in the fall of 2013 and have been working to create a centralized location where students can seek support to ensure their academic success. This comprehensive website was one of the first steps in the process.
In the fall of 2014, a physical location for the Center was identified and the ASTC established a home in the Psychology B building, room 120. This space hosts most of the day, evening, and weekend tutoring sessions as well as one-on-one Peer Academic Success Coaching meetings. Due to high demand, some tutoring sessions also take place in classroom spaces throughout campus.
The ASTC staff encourages your feedback and welcomes the opportunity to provide additional information about the vision for the Center. Please feel free to email the ASTC, submit a suggestion via this website, or request an in-person meeting with the staff.
