Academic Services

What is the Student Success Center?
Centrally located in the lower level of Quincy University’s Brenner Library, the Student Success Center will further student achievement at all levels through free tutoring services, Supplemental Instruction facilities, and focused support for both writing and math. In addition, the facility will house QU’s celebrated Career Services department through which students can explore internships and career possibilities.

Within the facility, visitors will find the Center for Academic Excellence (CAE) as well as the Center for Professional Excellence (CPE). Designed to enhance academic performance at all levels, the Center for Academic Excellence includes a large tutoring area, two supplemental instruction rooms, a state-of-the-art computer lab with discipline-specific software, focused study areas for math and writing, and ADA-compliant testing rooms.

Supplemental Instruction (SI)
Supplemental Instruction is an Academic Support program that targets courses that students traditionally find challenging. The basis of SI is weekly peer-led study sessions in the Learning Resource Center or a classroom in which all students enrolled in the course are welcome to participate. The SI Leader is a student who has taken that particular course, performed well and been recommended by the professor. The Leader attends class with the students to keep up with course content and progress, in addition to holding weekly study sessions. SI schedules will be posted at the beginning of each semester.
