Academic Support

Rinella Learning Center houses a multitude of Academic Support services. Our Academic Support services are designed to enhance student engagement in the learning process, encourage higher levels of academic performance, further critical thinking skills, and promote student self-authorship in the classroom. We aim to help students assess existing learning strategies and implement new ones.

Individual Academic Counseling Sessions

In Academic Counseling, students meet with a Learning Specialist to evaluate their learning goals and to develop a plan for action. Goals could include developing better study strategies, improving performance, or discussing ideas for optimizing their educational experience.

Students who are interested in meeting with a Learning Specialist should contact the Rinella Learning Center's main line at 513-529-8741. Meetings are available most times during the semester.
