As the Executive Director of the Student Academic Success unit – the First Year Advising Centre, Academic Learning Centre and ARTS 1110 - I would like to welcome you to the University of Manitoba and wish you tremendous success as you make the transition into post-secondary studies.
The first-year of university is an exciting stage in your life, but it might seem to be, at least at times, intimidating. You will be faced with several academic decisions and may find that you want to discuss your options with someone here at the university. The First Year Advising Centre and the knowledgeable academic advisors are located in Room 205 of Tier Building to help you understand your options. The Academic Learning Centre, located in Room 201 of Tier, and its staff are a welcoming group who provide resources and workshops designed to help you learn how to be successful at university.
We invite you to connect with us so that we can help you navigate the first-year and make your academic experience at the University of Manitoba an outstanding one.
