We're excited to partner with you in sending the message of academic support to your students! Here are a few ways you can convey that message.

Include an Academic Success Syllabus Message

We understand syllabis include many statements and can be an overwhelming amount of information. This information is intended to demonstrate to students that you care about their academic success and want to connect them to resources. Here is some sample language you might use in a syllabus:

Example 1

"Knowing and using your academic support resources is a key element of academic success. You can always talk with me about this course or successes and challenges in your other courses. Please feel free to use office hours, make an appointment, or stop by my office if you’re on campus to see if I’m available. I’d also encourage you to use your many success resources on campus such as the Academic Success Center's Learning Corner, Academic Coaching, Supplemental Instruction, and the Writing Center."

Example 2

"There are many people and resources at OSU that are eager to help you on your academic path, and that will support you as achieve success in college courses. If you’re unsure where to start, check out these free academic support resources: Academic Coaching, Supplemental Instruction, the Writing Center, the Learning Corner, and UESP. If none of these resources is the right fit, be in touch: talk to me, to your academic advisor, or to a student strategist in the Academic Success Center. We are excited to help you succeed!"

Integrate ASC Success Infographics Into Your Course Material

We have a range of infographics that help students meet the challenges of navigating university learning. If you have an idea for an infographic that would benefit students broadly or within your discipline/field, let us know!
