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, and the ASC would like to provide support and consultation to faculty members interested in supporting their students’ academic success.

Our staff has expertise in academic support resources, advising, academic coaching, study strategies, and guiding students as they navigate the research university. Our services include:

  • Information on the services and programs we offer students, and ideas on how to refer them to us
  • Presentations or workshops for your class, student group, or staff on academic success topics, resources or services
  • Activities and techniques to help your students develop their own academic success strategies through either in-class activities or one-on-one work with students
  • Individual consultation with you regarding students in academic difficulty and related resources the students could benefit from

Students in Difficulty: Whom Should I Contact?

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 designed to offer support to faculty and staff in their work with students.

The diagram below provides a great visual and 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 what is going on for that student.  Your outreach may be the first step in connecting the student with resources that meet their individual needs.

If you are interested in consulting with a staff member of the Academic Success Center regarding a student situation, please contact us via phone or email.  Please email or call the Academic Success Center front desk 541-737-2272.
