Academic Enhancement has merged with Presentation U! to become Transformative Learning. In Transformative Learning, services are student-responsive and programs are purposefully student-centered and designed to foster interactions that promote learning and attitudes towards academic life that are characteristic of successful college students. Our goal in Transformative Learning is to enhance students' academic experience as early and as often as possible. The staff strives to achieve this goal by working closely with students and faculty in the development of programs that will best serve the entire campus community.Transformative Learning includes:
Academic Success Initatives include a variety of programming designed to help students with the transition to college, enhance their academic skills, develop confidence in themselves as independent learners, and improve performance. Our programs include
The Academic Preparation & Placement Testing for College Readiness (APP) helps first-year undergraduate students reach benchmarks of college readiness in reading, writing, and mathematics. Each fall, students are enrolled in this state mandated program based on entrance and placement test scores. In each of the three areas, students are met where they are academically through one credit workshop courses.
The Peer Tutoring Program (PTP), commonly referred to as The Study, provides free drop-in tutoring primarily in UK Core mathematics, sciences, and business courses. Tutoring will be provided this fall at The Study South (3rd floor of Commons Complex) and The Study North (1st floor of Champions Court I). There is no subject specific tutoring during the Summer; visit Presentation U! for assistance.
Presentation U! is a state of the art multimodal communication center offering tutoring for students and support services for faculty to increase oral, written, and visual communication competence both inside and outside the classroom, as part of UK's Quality Enhancement Plan for SACS-COC accrediation.
