ASC Mission

Here at the Academic Support Center, our goal is to help IU students succeed academically by helping them with various scholarly issues and by serving as a useful academic resource within the residence halls. As it has expanded into all three residential "neighborhoods," the primary mission of the Academic Support Center remains to provide students with the wide range of support services necessary to meet the academic demands they face.

To make these services accessible to students, particularly first-year students, is one of the goals behind having numerous centers located in various residence halls. The Academic Support Center is currently located in the Briscoe, Forest, and Teter residence halls and is open in the evenings, Sunday through Thursday from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., to offer tutoring and other support services to students. The diverse staff facilitates both group and individual tutorials, workshops, study groups, study tables and academic advising to assist IU students, particularly first-year students who are at risk of leaving the Bloomington campus. In short, the ASC strives to encourage overall academic success for these students by making them feel more a part of the university in terms of both living space and "academic culture."

We have three locations open during the evenings, Sunday-Thursday from 7:00-11:00 pm, with same-day sign-ups beginning at 6 pm at each location:

  1. in the center building of Briscoe Quad at the corner of Fee Lane and 17th St.
    (812)855-6931
  2. in the center building of Forest Residence Center on 3rd St.
    (812)856-3060
  3. in the center building of Teter Quad on Sunrise Dr.
    (812)856-4457
To contact the ASC director, please call (812) 855-7016.

ASC News: All locations (Briscoe, Forest and Teter) of the ASC will be open through finals week, with our last night of evening assistance on Thursday, December 18.
