NEW:  Student Drop-in/Peer Mentorship Program

AccessAbility Services offers a drop-in space to provide students with convenient access to learning strategy and technology support as well as a space to work on assignments, and meet with peer mentors.

Drop-ins are usually 15-20 minutes of consultation time with one or more of the following services:

  • learning strategies
  • adaptive technology
  • library support
  • research and writing support
  • peer support

It’s a time for students to come together to ask questions, meet with a mentor, or talk about an assignment or project.

Students are asked to bring hard copies of assignment instructions and notes or drafts along with their laptop to work on the assignment.

Hours:  Monday through Thursday, 1:30 - 4:30 in Needles Hall 1403.
