The Academic Success Center (ASC) is committed to supporting student success and helping students achieve their academic goals. Professors, instructors, advisors and other university staff members are some of the best resources students have! You are a main point of contact for students, and at the ASC, we would like to support your work with students and provide consultations on student success.
Our staff has expertise in academic support resources, advising, academic coaching, study strategies, and guiding students as they navigate the university. Our services include:
Please keep the ASC in mind as you design outreach and referral plans; we're happy to support your process through the resources below, or through individual conversations as you decide the best approach for connecting with your students.
Students get many emails from the university, faculty, and staff. This means that when you do email outreach, it’s important to be deliberate in your rhetorical choices. You may want to spend some time thinking and talking through with colleagues when to send outreach, what format to use, what tone to take, and what to recommend to students.
The ASC has materials to support your process in designing effective outreach:
Sometimes it can be helpful to write a brief email to students and include an attachment that has more information on resources available to them, so that students can take time reviewing the material and making choices that work for them.
The ASC has a one-pager you can attach to outreach emails to provide a comprehensive overview of ASC services and a few other helpful university services. It includes both benefits and descriptions of how and where to access each resource:
For more resources that you can integrate into curriculum or class time, please check out our available Success Resources for Class.
Feedback can be a great way ensure your outreach efforts have the strongest plan possible for impact. It can also be useful to help you imagine the range of ways students might receive and respond to specific aspects of your outreach.
A few sources you might consider for feedback include…
During their time at OSU, students may face challenging life events, health issues and a host of other personal situations that impact their academic and personal success. The Academic Success Center joins the Dean of Student Life Office, the Student Life Assistance Team, the Student Care Team, and a myriad of other programs and services in offering support to faculty and staff that work with students.
The visual in the links below provides clear contact information for resources available for consultation about a student. At the Academic Success Center, we know that often times what appears as an academic issue or an instance of academic difficulty may only be one element of a much larger situation. Your outreach may be the first step in connecting the student with resources that meet their individual needs.
