Evidence-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. We will continue to offer both 1:1 Study Skills Counseling and all group services virtually. We are happy to connect with our students via either telesessions (phone meetings) or video-chat using Zoom. 

Check out this COVID to Campus guide, created by one of our Study Skills Academy Coaches, Elena Tsantis, in an effort to promote a smooth transition back to in-person learning.
