SASS has partnered with faculty and other departments at TSU to provide interactive workshops and identify academic gaps to assist students in completing their mid-terms.

Readiness Week campus cooperatives include the University Counseling Center and Student Accessibility Services.

Brandon Ward, academic advisor and Academic Skill Center manager, and Jacqueline Goodwater, SASS Tutorial Center Tutorial manager, created an online event to support students on an academic, mental and spiritual basis. Goodwater and Ward are expecting success for participating students through skills and tutoring that will serve them during mid-terms and beyond.

“Departments are contributing their resources to the event by (holding) workshops to meet each student's needs (and) prepare them for mid-term week. (This) creates the opportunity to connect with students on a personal level.

SASS Online Tutoring assisted with organizing and planning the event by identifying top core courses (that) students are requesting for tutorial support. We are also identified which peer tutors are available to (provide) support during and after the event,” Goodwater said.

“The Academic Skill Center is positioned to help students with study skills, note-taking skills, and dealing with the stressors that come with preparing for Mid-Term week,” Ward said. “We are offering workshops and connecting students to University resources to help (them) be successful during mid-term week.”
