Resources for Faculty

The Academic Success Center is a resource for faculty who wish to help students adjust to the academic demands of university life.

When you refer your students for tutoring or to meet with an advisor, you communicate the value of these services to students who may be hesitant or who do not yet understand the importance of seeking help.

Starfish referrals allow you to express your concern for the student and collegially share your concern with that student’s faculty advisor. This does not become part of the student’s permanent academic record, it is a method of informing students and their advisors that improvement is necessary.

The Academic Success Center directly assists faculty advisors by consulting and providing information in all areas of problem solving, curricula, academic policy and procedure, and advising practice.

Please direct your advising questions to the Director, Megan Mills. You may also access advising forms and other relevant academic resources through our website.
