An Overview of our Academic Support Centers and Programs.
The Academic Learning Center
We offer many services and programs to assist students in their academic success and to enhance their collegiate experience at KU. Choose from individual consultations, group workshops or general or course-specific academic assistance, by appointment or on a walk-in basis.
The Academic Retention and Engagement Center
We support our students through dedicated retention initiatives designed to facilitate a successful transition to KU and the ongoing support needed to help students accomplish their goals.
The KU Writing Center
Writers need feedback, sounding boards, and other people to coach them while they compose. That's where the KU Writing Center comes in. It's a place for productive talk about writing, with trained peer consultants to help you brainstorm, draft, and revise your projects.
Native American Initiatives
We strive to create an atmosphere of Native American self-determination in partnership with communities that value Native perspectives, while empowering Native student success in the broader spectrum of family, tribe, and community. At NAI, we provide students holistic support, mentoring, resources, professional development opportunities, cultural and social programming through celebrating Native American identities, cultural representation, and supporting success through a community of Native students, faculty, and staff on KU's campus and beyond.
The Student Access Center
The Student Access Center assists students with disabilities by facilitating accommodations that remove barriers to their academic success. We authorize reasonable and appropriate accommodations for qualified students with documented disabilities, assist students in self-advocacy, educate the University of Kansas about disabilities, and ensure compliance with federal and state law.
