Academic Strategy Workshops

Building the skills required for success in college does not happen overnight. Getting to know yourself as a learner is the first step towards achieving success. Academic Strategy Workshops provide you with self-assessments as well as practical tools and techniques you can use in your coursework.

Each workshop is designed to best serve the needs of each individual student or group. Complete an Academic Support Request Form, and a member of the Learning Commons staff will reach out with details on how to meet virtually.
