Faculty are our most powerful partners in engaging students with academic support
resources on our campus. To assist you in directing students to campus academic support
resources, we have drafted language that you may choose to include on your syllabi/cougar
courses about each center/program. We also provide contact info for each center/program.
We look forward to working with you to ensure students have access to available academic
resources that are sure to help them succeed.
