Tutoring and Mentoring
Duquesne offers many free services to help you not only meet, but exceed your academic goals. We recognize that each student is unique and faces different obstacles on the path to graduation. The following resources are available to help with every assignment along the way.
Learning Skills Center
The Michael P. Weber Learning Skills Center provides trained tutors and a comprehensive study skills program to help develop and enhance student skills as well as to assist students experiencing academic difficulties. Current students can learn more in the DORI Intranet.
One of the most helpful resources on campus for students to maximize their potential is the Writing Center. The center can provide you with one-on-one assistance -- throughout all stages of the writing process -- for academic papers, professional applications, resumes, Web sites, presentations and other projects. Instructors not only help students write better papers, but to become better writers in general.
Freshmen Grade Monitoring and Mentor Program
Freshman grades are monitored throughout the first two semesters through Freshmen Grade Monitoring. This process is in place to make sure our new students are adjusting to a college curriculum and, if needed, are being directed to the appropriate resources to improve their academics.
The Mentor Program assigns new students to a member of Duquesne's faculty, staff or administration who will assist them in their transition. This individual is there to answer questions, and share information about academics, campus organizations, entertainment and University life.
