Purdue Diversity Resources
Academic Tutoring Resources
Purdue has a wide variety of ways to help students succeed in the classroom. Here is a list of free academic tutoring resources.
The Student Success at Purdue department, a division of the Office of the Provost, empowers and inspires all students to embrace a sense of life-long learning by providing nationally-recognized, student-centered, pre-college preparation and college success initiatives and services. These initiatives assist students in their preparation for, transition into, and success in a college environment. The department’s various interconnected programs assist students in progressive stages of development; and have as their ultimate goals an increased rate of student degree completion, future employment or study, dedicated citizenship, and responsible leadership in the state, nation, and world.
