About Academic Support

Our Mission: We provide services that assist students so that they can become more effective, engaged and intentional learners. Our services are designed to provide support for students at all stages of their college careers.

Our Philosophy: We believe in helping students develop the skills necessary to be successful learners by providing a supportive learning environment that fosters intellectual growth.

Our Practice: Within a supportive environment, students work collaboratively and one-on-one with support staff to achieve academic success by:

  • gaining an understanding of their learning behaviors;
  • mastering learning strategies that can be applied to general knowledge acquisition or specific course work;
  • connecting students with campus resources to assist them throughout their learning experiences at Warren Wilson College.
