The Sagan Academic Resource Center (ARC) staff has worked intentionally in recent years to develop an academic success model that provides integrated and targeted support to an increasing number of students who rely on multiple resources for their success. To meet the needs of current and future OWU students, the Sagan ARC has upgraded services, introduced new resources, and developed academic success programs, such as

  • TutorMe--a 24/7 online service with tutors in over 300 subject areas, including Anthropology, Biology, Chemistry, Economics, English, Geology, Mathematics, Modern Foreign Language, Psychology, and Statistics and XML Programming.
  • Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI)--an online self-assessment to help students better understand their study skill strengths and challenges in 10 areas, including Test Strategies, Motivation, Selecting Main Ideas, and Time Management.
  • Guided Tutorial in Writing--a writing resource for students who need targeted and additional support during the semester to improve their writing skills and be successful in one or more courses.
  • Academic Support & Achievement Program (ASAP)--a spring semester success program with seven academic skills workshops for students who experience academic challenges in the fall semester of their first year.
  • Bishop ACCESS--a fee-based academic coaching program for students with disabilities who would like an additional level of support to help them navigate university life, enhance study skills, and complete work that requires planning, goal-setting, and managing time.

The Sagan ARC staff works collaboratively to help students reach their academic goals by empowering them with the skills they need to be independent and life-long learners--both inside and outside the classroom.

Academic Advising 

Academic Advising provides students with resources related to course pre-registration and choosing a major. Advisors meet one-on-one with their advisees to make sure they meet graduation and major requirements. In addition, advisors may direct students to Career Services or pre-professional program advisors so they can make adequate plans for post-graduation jobs or graduate school searches.

Academic Skills Center

The Academic Skills Center assists students in the areas of time management, note-taking, study and test-taking skills, and stress management.  For an additional level of academic and coaching support, students may choose to participate in Bishop ACCESS--a fee-based program for students with disabilities who wish to enhance executive functioning skills.

Disability Services Center

The Disability Services Center promotes access and opportunities for students with disabilities through collaboration with the other Centers in the Sagan Academic Resource Center, including the Office of Academic Advising, and collaborates across campus with Counseling Center, the Residential Life Office, the Wellness Center, and the faculty.

Quantitative Skills Center

The Quantitative Skills Center provides tutoring and assistance to both individuals and groups in any quantitative area of their studies, as well as GRE preparation. The Q-Center is staffed by professional tutors and peer tutors with advanced mathematics experience.

Writing Center

The Writing Center provides one-on-one tutoring and instruction by professional writing consultants, peer tutors, and student interns. Besides working with students on writing skills and assignments across the curriculum, the staff works with students on resumes, cover letters, and personal statements for graduate and professional schools.
