The central mission of the Academic Support & Enrichment Center is to enrich and enhance the educational experience of all Denison students and to support faculty-student interaction. The Academic Support & Enrichment Center regularly offers programs and services designed to help students improve their overall academic performance and ultimately assist students in achieving excellence. The staff is available to consult with faculty on issues pertaining to advising and individual student concerns. The Center coordinates the University Tutoring Program and offers individualized academic assistance.
The Center also works closely with students and faculty coordinating the delivery of services and accommodations to students with documented disabilities. Denison University is committed to providing equal access and reasonable accommodations to students with disabilities as defined under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Students seeking accommodations or auxiliary services need to forward a copy of their most recent medical report or evaluation documenting the existence of a specific disability to the Academic Support & Enrichment Center. Documentation needs to be recent, preferably within the last three years, and needs to have been compiled by an appropriate licensed professional, e.g., psychologist, psychiatrist, learning specialist, physician, etc.
Specific accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis by the Academic Support & Enrichment Center utilizing required documentation and, if needed, individual consultation with the student and or appropriate professionals. Upon request, the staff will notify individual faculty or staff members of a student's need for accommodations. Please note that only the student can disclose the nature of his/her disability to others. It is the student's responsibility to discuss specific accommodation needs directly with his/her faculty member at the beginning of each semester.
Reasonable academic accommodations include, but are not limited to: extended time on exams, note-taking assistance, distraction-free locations for testing, priority registration, supplemental advising, texts on tape, etc. Students seeking additional information regarding Denison Disability Grievance Procedures should contact the Director of Academic Support and Enrichment at ext. 6666. Go to Disability Services for complete information regarding the protocol for requesting accommodations and related services due to a disability.
The Academic Support & Enrichment Center is not open during the summer. Please call 740-587-6666 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance or accommodations. For more information, go to Academic Support & Enrichment Center.
