Cooper Foundation Center for Academic Resources

Providing assistance to all NWU students at every stage of their academic careers, including writing, speaking projects, and study skills.

Located on the first floor of the Cochrane-Woods Library, the Cooper Foundation Center for Academic Resources is staffed by highly trained peer writing consultants who were selected for their outstanding academic work. We are eager to help clients improve academic performance. Many of our peer consultants have taken the classes you’re in now; so, they can speak from direct experience about a professor’s expectations and preferences.

The Cooper Center also houses all tutoring on campus to increase student performance and retention. Our Cooper Tutors provide individual and small group, out-of-class, peer-facilitated sessions.

We use two online scheduling systems—one for writing consultations with our Cooper Center writing consultants, WC Online, and the other, Tutor Matching Service, for tutoring appointments with a Cooper Tutor. You can access both sites by clicking on the appointment buttons and making an account.

We look forward to working with you!
