Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

Academic Strategies Program

Welcome to the Academic Strategies Program!


We help students learn how to navigate the “hidden curriculum” of Yale–that invisible set of underlying assumptions and expectations about how to do well as a student that are implicitly embedded in Yale’s culture and are not taught in the classroom. 

By becoming aware of these implicit cultural-academic norms, students become empowered to take a new and more active kind of ownership over their own academic choices, and ultimately, to get the most out of their academic experience, no matter who they are or where they are in their educational journey. 

We give students the tools to do this through 1-1 mentoring sessions, group mentoring sessions, and interactive workshops with our amazing team of peer mentors.

Want to make an appointment? Email us anytime at academicstrategies@yale.edu!

We work with all students. See our menu to the left for links to our different kinds of support.
