Academic Skills

We’re more than just writing assistance and peer tutors. At the ERC, we have a variety of support programs to help you transition into college, tackle the ever-important sophomore year, and guide you through the wealth of resources at BU so that you can make informed decisions. Faculty and staff are encouraged to reach out to an ERC staff member to discuss ways we can help your students.
