Supported Learning Groups (SLGs)
SLGs happen weekly and are for students taking historically challenging classes. They’re peer-led and are designed to give you an in-depth understanding of the course while learning in a small group. Learn more about SLGs.
We offer academic coaching to all students. You can meet with an academic coach throughout each semester. Learn more about our approach to academic coaching and set up your first meeting either online or in-person.
