The University Center for Academic Excellence offers a wide variety of workshops on topics that strengthen students' academic success.  These highly interactive workshops are led by staff and trained graduate students virtually, on-site and across campus.

Please bring student identification card to check-in for in-person workshops. Late arrivals may not be admitted. Online workshops may require students to sign-in with their NinerNet credentials. 

All workshop topics can be covered in a Personal Academic Consultation
