BioCommons Tutorial Support Program
Support Services
Hired tutors to provide small group exam preparation for students enrolled in foundation upper level science courses Biochemistry 501, Microbiology 303, and Genetics 466. The goal was to develop a consistent community of study group attendees to have regular question and answer time in a consistent space to help address a commonly expressed concern, particularly for URM or first generation students, of difficulty navigating the process for getting help and finding others to study with. Facilitators met with the groups for exam preparation, and course material review.
Initiative is not on behalf of a RSO.
