About Us

tutor working with studentUndergraduate Academic Affairs provides services to students, faculty, and staff through a variety of programs, including those offered by the Learning Centers.Through these programs, we aim to support student learning and provide enrichment opportunities for students seeking to enhance their academic careers. In addition, we act as a resource for faculty and staff who are interested in learning new instructional strategies or developing additional methods of support for their students. To accomplish these goals, we offer a variety of support services, all of which are free to Rutgers University faculty, staff, and students. We offer:

Academic Support

  • Peer Tutoring is available in two forms. Walk-in group tutoring is available on all campuses and one-on-one tutoring is available through our partnership with the SAS Honors Program.
  • Academic Coaching is a comprehensive service for students who want to improve their academic and self-management skills, such as time management, critical thinking, and study skills. 
  • Writing Coaching supports writers in a variety of disciplines and a range of courses. Our coaches meet individually with students about brainstorming topics, organizing ideas, formulating a thesis, structuring paragraphs, and developing an argument.
