Services are FREE, FULLY ONLINE and available to all students, faculty, and staff.

For help with speeches and presentations visit the Speaking Center. International students can make appointments at the Conversation Center to build fluency and intercultural conversation skills. IDEAL offers support with all digital media compositions, from making a better PowerPoint to editing a video or creating a website.

The Rhetoric Centers are hosted by the Department of Rhetoric and supported by CLAS.

Academic Support Fall 2020

Now is the time of the semester when many students more actively begin to seek academic support. There are many changes and new resources this fall given virtual learning environments.  

Tutor Iowa

You can continue to use Tutor Iowa ( to search campus-wide academic support options, access a variety of academic success strategies/tips, and request academic workshops for groups of students. Tutor Iowa lists the most up to date information on academic support resources (e.g. SI is virtual this semester).

Updates and new virtual resources:

  • Online Learning Featured!- There is a new page focused on Online Learning. This page serves as a platform to connect to different virtual resources that students can utilize on their own (e.g. worksheets on online learning, how to communicate with faculty).
    • Posted in this section are two new videos from the Success at Iowa course: Preparing for Online Learning and Virtual Learning Success Strategies.
    • We have created a Time Management worksheet (also attached) in partnership with ISSS that focuses on how to manage academics this fall while living in a different time zone. The strategies shared can also help students in CST.
  • Academic workshops are offered virtually this semester!
