Academic Resources Center
The Academic Resources Center includes assistance with study skills, peer tutoring, and specific programs coordinated with science and mathematics courses. One of WPI’s most popular programs, Math And Science Help (MASH) is run through the ARC.
Students can also set up Individualized Academic Success Plans through the ARC. By doing this you can set academic goals, discover your learning strengths and weaknesses, and then design specific strategies that work best with these strengths and weaknesses.
The goal of WPI's Center for Communication Across the Curriculum is to develop and teach effective communication strategies through a variety of workshops and tutoring sessions across the WPI campus. Students can also sign up for hour long tutoring sessions to go over a final paper or writing assignment. Located on the second floor of the Project Center, the CCAC is directed by WPI faculty and includes a staff of specially-trained student writing tutors.
Office of Disability Services
The Office Disability Services is located in the SDCC on West Street and coordinates services and provides advocacy and support to students with documented physical, learning, sensory, psychological, and developmental disabilities.
Student Development and Counseling
The Student Development and Counseling Center (SDCC) is located in West Street House (157 West St.) and provides educational programming and training as well as counseling, referral, and crisis intervention services free of charge to all WPI students. The counseling services provided aim at helping students thrive. Short-term counseling, consultation, and referral services address situational problems such as academic performance, loss of an important relationship, roommate disputes, general stress; more serious crisis issues such as physical or sexual assault, suicidal thoughts, loss of a loved one; or simply gaining a better understanding of oneself. Student confidentiality is always respected.
