Academic Success Center

Missouri Baptist University (MO)

The Academic Success Center at Missouri Baptist University provides services and resources to enhance student learning in and outside the classroom. The center offers tutoring services, career planning and counseling, and special needs services.

Each student who is admitted to university under academic probation is interviewed by center staff and completes a self assessment of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. The director of the center follows up via subsequent meetings to assess student progress. The director checks mid-term grades so that an appropriate intervention can be made before the semester ends. Professors are given teaching load credit to tutor in the mathematics and writing labs.

Funding comes from the institution.

The program is in its inaugural year. The university plans to monitor data and assess the center's effectiveness.
