Office of Academic Enrichment Resources

Featured

The Office of Academic Enrichment has a number of resources available to help those who are struggling, as well as to those who are successful and looking for ways to sharpen their skills.

TUTORING

  • Individual Tutoring. Undergraduate tutors are available for $12/hr; graduate tutors are $15/hr.
  • Drop-In Tutoring. Free; available 5 days a week in math, chemistry, physics and biology (see website for hours/location).
  • Group Tutoring. Free group tutoring in a number of courses is offered each semester. Groups are formed in response to student requests.

STUDY SKILLS ASSISTANCE

    • Workshops at the OAE.  We appreciate your posting our workshop schedule where it will be visible to students visiting your department; feel free to make as many copies as you wish.
    • Online workshops: Your Roadmap to Success (http://www.udel.edu/AEC-workshop/). These workshops are designed to help students identify skill areas they need to improve in, to practice new techniques, and to evaluate their progress. Extra posters advertising these workshops are available this fall while supplies last…let me know if you’d like to have one.
    • Academic Intake appointments. Any student can meet with one of our staff members to assess his/her current study strategies and develop a plan for strengthening those strategies. In particular, students in academic difficulty can benefit from this one-on-one academic counseling.

Plastino Scholar Awards

The Plastino Scholar awards were established in 2007 by a generous gift from David A. Plastino, a UD alumnus.  The awards support self-designed, off-campus learning experiences that enrich the lives of the student recipients and others who are impacted by their projects.  Plastino awards are competitive, and Plastino Scholars are among UD’s most talented, promising, and imaginative students.  For the current academic year, Plastino Scholar applications are due on December 8, 2017.

Interest meetings will be held on Monday, October 9, 2017 at 5:00 PM in Room 308 Gore Hall and on Wednesday, November 8, 2017 at 5:00 PM in Room 222 Gore Hall.

Interested students should be encouraged to visit the Plastino Scholars website (https://www.cas.udel.edu/plastino-scholars).
