Whether it is the Science Learning Center study groups, or the Sweetland Writing Center’s one-on-one writing workshops, we find our most successful students take advantage of at least one of these free resources each semester. We consistently hear positive comments from students about each of these resources.
Science Learning Center (SLC)is sponsored by the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LS&A) to support teaching and learning in the natural sciences.
The Engineering Learning Resource Center (ELRC) is a one-stop shop for academic and career information, tutoring and counseling services, exam files, and other resources that enhance student academic and professional success.
This is a great resource for student to get feedback on writing for any class through peer tutoring, one-on-one workshops with Sweetland faculty, or by using the Online Writing Lab (OWL).
The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) creates research partnerships between first and second year students and University of Michigan faculty. All schools and colleges of the University of Michigan are active participants in UROP, thereby providing a wealth of research topics from which a student can choose.
The WISE Residential Program is a living-learning experience for first and second year students majoring in science, engineering or mathematics. Located in Mosher-Jordan residence hall, the program provides networks, study groups, sections of first year classes, mentoring, and support. Initially funded with University moneys and a grant from the fund to improve Post-Secondary Education (FIPSE), this program has recently been honored by the National Science Foundation with a “Recognition Award for the Integration of Research and Education.” (RAIRE).
Michigan Research and Discovery Scholars (MRADS) is a living learning program at the University of Michigan, sponsored by the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program.
