Faculty take a more active role in their student's learning process. When faculty lead the workshops, they can quickly identify and address gaps in students learning. It can prevent students from misunderstanding assignments or feeling left behind in coursework. That's why the STAR Center is seeking to collaborate with faculty to connect with students.
Faculty participation can consist of the following:  

  • Providing/selecting study topics  

  • Providing potential dates  

  • Facilitating sessions  

If you are interested in providing content-specific support and/or study skills-focused workshops, please submit this form: We will follow up with each submission and provide the support needed in facilitating the sessions, including assistance in creating the WebEx invitations and advertising. Faculty are welcome to sign up for any subject.
