The Academic Support department strives to enhance the pursuit of lifelong learning, intellectual inquiry and communication by fostering students' academic success and encouraging self-advocacy. Services promote a holistic developmental process that empowers students to become independent, competent and confident learners.
The department offers services to all students in writing and tutoring, provides Supplemental Instruction for select courses, supports students with disabilities in academic accommodations, and aids first-year students in their transition to Saint Louis University through the University 101 course and the MAP-Works transition assessment.
I particularly value the writing services available in the Student Success Center, and frequently encourage students to visit the Center for help with everything from essays to term papers. Over the years writing services have assisted many of my students in improving their written communication skills within just one semester.
