About the Center

The Academic Skills Center provides University of Richmond students with support that will enhance their academic experience and personal development. The Center assists students in understanding and learning ways to improve their cognitive skills, thus maximizing their collegiate experience.

Academic Skills Center staff members are engaged in helping students assess (e.g., Learning and Study Strategies Inventory, Learning Styles Inventory, etc.) their academic strengths and weaknesses; hone their academic skills through teaching effective information processing, test-taking, and related techniques; work on specific subject areas (e.g. calculus, chemistry, accounting, etc.); and encourage campus and community involvement.
