Students engaged in the classroom

At Marian University, we recognize that you are intellectually curious. To ensure you have a successful college experience, the Office of Academic Engagement offers a range of services tp meet your learning needs, such as:

  • Peer tutoring
  • Supplemental instruction
  • Organized study groups
  • Student success seminars
  • Academic success coaching

Located in Clare Hall Room 119, we focus on providing hands-on, student-centered and student-led learning opportunities in an educational, relaxed, and non-threatening environment.

You'll find peer tutors and student leaders who are specially trained to help you comprehend course material, apply new study strategies, and effectively prepare for exams.

We want all Marian students to benefit from our services and I encourage you to take advantage of these FREE resources.
