Academic Excellence Workshops (AEW) are small group learning experiences that allow students to work collaboratively to master course material. These workshops are led by a trained student facilitator who regularly communicates with faculty to ensure workshop participants master challenging course concepts. Students are encouraged to discuss their tactics, procedures, and results in ways that help each other further their understanding of the course concepts. The AEWs help build community, provide enhanced academic support, and allow you to understand the best practices for problem-solving in your field. Workshop participants learn to work collaboratively to successfully solve difficult problems, gain confidence in their abilities, and are more successful in their courses.
MESA Program students are strongly encouraged to attend AEWs for the courses they are enrolled in each semester. These workshops are under development for the Fall 2023 semester. Please check back with us for our updated schedule.
