Asbury’s Academic Resources Set Students Up for Success
July 22, 2019
Academic resources at Asbury University set students up for success. No matter what area of study students pursue at Asbury, a range of academic offices and resources ensures their access to support. From an expansive library collection to resume writing help, here are a few of the academic resources that help Asbury students succeed in the classroom and on the job.
Kinlaw Library is the academic powerhouse of campus, where individuals and information interface. The library offers more than 150,000 items in its expansive collection of materials. Group and individual study rooms give students space to work collaboratively or in solitude, while 18 study carrels, 40 study tables and more than 30 individual comfortable chairs provide seating options for all. High-tech study pods provide even more additional space on the main floor. Each semester, students receive a printing balance which they can use at the Kinlaw printing stations. Students also love grabbing coffee and snacks at the Hiccup Too, Kinlaw’s snack bar, between study sessions.
Center for Academic Excellence
Located in Kinlaw Library, the Center for Academic Excellence provides students with the academic support necessary to thrive in all of their classes. Peer tutoring and other services are offered to give class-specific support, writing help or assistance with other academic needs. The Center for Academic Excellence is split into three divisions of service, including the Writing Center, Course Tutoring and Academic Coaching Services.
Center for Career & Calling
At Asbury, students “start here and impact the world.” That’s why we’ve made it easy for students to access resources that will help them succeed in their future careers. The Center for Career & Calling provides assistance with major and career exploration, job searching, resume writing, interviewing and searching for graduate and professional schools.
Global Engagement Office
The Global Engagement Office (GEO) offers curricular and co-curricular opportunities to challenge students to have an increased cultural awareness and sensitivity. GEO offers guidance in choosing a study abroad or off-campus program and oversees the Cross-Cultural Engagement requirement (CCE073). GEO also assists international students through the English Language Center as well as hosts regular events and seminars.
Under the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA), the Academic Accessibility office provides academic accommodations for students with disabilities. Asbury faculty and staff know that every student’s journey is different, so Academic Accessibility is offered on a case-by-case basis depending on how a student self-reports, past history of need and current need of academic accommodations.
Asbury’s academic resources are just some of the many ways that the University equips students to impact the world through their vocations, in their churches and within their families upon graduating.
