Faith is committed to helping all students academically and offers the following resources to help students achieve academic success.
Faith makes provisions to accommodate any student who has documented physical or academic needs. If the accommodations are physical or medical in nature, the student should contact Mrs. Kim Nihart, the Director of Health Services. If the accommodations are academic in nature, the student should contact Mr. David Horner, the Director of Accommodations Services. In addition to the help a professor can give a student in a course, Faith also provides additional services as described below.
Study Skills Workshop
Faith provides study skills workshops at the beginning of each semester to assist students in time management, content reading, note taking, test taking, memory retention, and composition.
The Write Spot
Faith emphasizes the importance of excellence in written communications. To assist students in achieving excellence in writing, we provide a writing center, called the Write Spot, which will assist students by reviewing rough drafts of papers, answering grammar and mechanics questions, and providing guidance in the various steps of the writing process (prewriting, drafting, revising, and editing). The Write Spot is staffed by individuals with a solid English background who can meet the needs of the students. The Write Spot is located on the upper level of the Library, and hours of operation are posted each semester.
Writing Improvement Program
The Writing Improvement program assesses students at different points in their freshmen and sophomore years and provides additional writing instruction for those who may need it.
Faculty or peer tutoring is available by request for students who want additional help in completing assignments or taking tests.
