Academic Resource Center

Webster University (MO)

The Academic Resource Center at Webster University offers students academic support via such services as qualified writing coaches and a peer tutoring program. A testing center offers support for assessing student progress. Students with physical and learning disabilities can arrange for academic accommodations.

Individual academic counseling sessions offer students help in developing organizational and learning strategies. A student success committee helps faculty identify and assist students who may be at risk academically. Funding comes from the institution.

Bottom Line:  Although these programs have been in place only a relatively short time, the institution has already seen a slight increase in retention.
