For Instructors & Advisors

The Student Success Centre is committed to working with you to help students achieve success. Some of the ways we can work together include:

In-Class Workshops 

We are available to come to your class and provide a session to support the development of the learning skills your students need to succeed. Some examples of topics include academic writing, note taking, exam preparation and time management. We can also present a workshop to your class if you are away and unable to teach.

Find out more about in-class workshops or request a workshop.

Early Referral Program

Students, particularly those in first year, face many challenges in undertaking university-level course work.
Some feel lost and overlooked in the university environment, others may not be academically prepared, or
they may have financial or personal issues that impact their studies.

Student-faculty contact is a critical component of study success. We hope to enhance the on-going support you provide to students in your classes by connecting them with other campus services. Referring students to the Student Success Centre allows us to make timely and personal contact with those you feel may benefit from additional support.

UR Guarantee Program

The UR Guarantee Program supports students through every step of their university experience and is customized based on their specific needs. Students in our program have an advisor to help them with ALL aspects of university life including access to academic supports, service and leadership opportunities, career development, ways to get involved on campus and in the community, and opportunities to meet new people.

All students may take advantage of our unique support. For new students (and those with less than 30 credit hours): if they do not secure career-related employment within six months of graduation, they will be eligible to come back for another year of undergraduate classes free of charge (tuition and course fees).
