Would you like assistance with any of the above? You’re in the right place.
  • Yale undergraduates worked with us to identify academic experiences that most commonly presented challenges, and our Academic Mentors researched the strategies that students can use to work more efficiently and effectively.
  • Each workshop begins by helping students identify their own goals and concerns, and provides opportunities for students to plan the approaches that might work best for them.

Workshops are open to all Yale College students, and there is no registration required. However, if you register on Yale Connect, powered by OrgSync, you will receive an email reminder.
