Information for Faculty


The Office of Academic Support provides academic assistance to students and faculty in a wide variety of programs and services.  While our primary focus is working directly with students, we also work closely with faculty to support your work with students by developing customized study materials, embedding academic support resources directly into your studies and offering studies for your mentees to take to improve their academic skills development.

Embedded academic support can include:

  • Partnering Faculty with Learning Coaches or Peer Coaches for a particular independent study, group study or residency course.
    • Currently connecting with Micro/Macro Economics, Critical Thinking, Enhancing the Academic Eye and No Ordinary Times: American in the Depression Years 1929-1941
    • Watch a video of how the peer coaching program works and the impact Peer Coaches have had on students and faculty - 


  • Assigning a Learning Coach or Peer Coach to a particular mentee to aid them with completing an assignment or working on developing skill.



  • Customized Study Aids for your Students – If you have a particular assignment or content that students find difficult, we can help you by designing customized study aids and resources for you and your students. Contact Lisa (x5939) to get started.


  • Classroom Presentation or Materials - Faculty members and instructors wishing to have a member of the Academic Support staff visit their class to introduce students to the services we offer may schedule an appointment talking to Lisa, Kate or Sarah.  If you would like to receive academic support information sheets, workshop schedules, terms-at-a-glance, datebooks or other materials to distribute to your students, you may email your request to necacademicsupport@esc.edu or call Lisa (x5939).
