Brain-based study strategies to enhance learning and academic performance 

The Study Skills Academy is a free, university-wide program offering a variety of services to ultimately enhance the success of Wayne State University students. In addition to working directly with students to provide them with evidence-based study strategies, we offer professional development trainings, guest lectures, and individual consulting to staff and faculty to promote a campus culture of learning effectiveness. 

* COVID-19 services update: The Study Skills Academy is committed to supporting WSU students by arming them with applicable learning performance strategies. Because the University is eliminating all face-to-face instruction, we'll be offering both 1:1 Study Skills Counseling and all group services remotely. We are happy to connect with our students via either tele-sessions (phone meetings) or video-chat using the WSU-supported Canvas platform, BigBlueButton. 

Navigate our menu to learn more and request services. Updates on each service can be found on their respective pages.
