Several services that report through the Office of Student Experience will make formal changes to their titles at the start of the school year, reports associate vice-president Ryan Flannagan.
Student Disability Services will become Student Accessibility Services, the Student Success Centre will become the Student Success and Leadership Centre, and Academic Advising will operate independently of both.
“We feel that the term accessibility better represents the work of our staff to facilitate the inclusion of all students fully into the fabric of the University,” Flannagan says. “Our supports focus on helping each individual optimize their academic and social opportunities.”
Student Accessibility Services:
- provides classroom and testing accommodations;
- consults and trains in assistive technologies;
- coaches students with learning disabilities or attention deficit disorders; and
- works with students and faculty to ensure that the diverse learning needs of students are met.
Its main offices are located in room 117, Dillon Hall. Find more information on its website.
The Student Success and Leadership Centre offers programs to help students develop academic, personal, and leadership skills, including Head Start and Welcome Week orientation, Skills to Enhance Personal Success and Writing Support study and essay services, Outstanding Scholars and Connecting4Success mentorship opportunities, and Lead@UWindsor volunteer experiences.
It is headquartered in room 117, Dillon Hall; learn more at www.uwindsor.ca/success.
Academic Advising can help undergraduate students navigate university regulations and procedures, including:
- choosing or changing a program or major of study;
- adding or dropping courses;
- degree requirements and the degree audit; and
- dealing with academic probation and other difficulties.
Advisors are located in room 115, Dillon Hall. They can provide referral to relevant campus services. More information is available at www.uwindsor.ca/advising.
