John F. Kennedy University

Academic Support and Learning Resource Centers

The Academic Support Center provides important success skills, including writing, getting the most from your reading, critical thinking, research papers, study skills and time management. We offer one-on-one appointments via phone, email or in-person at one of our three campus locations.

The Center can help you at any stage of the writing process: if you're blocked and just need help getting started, if you'd like feedback on a draft, or if you just have a few quick editing questions before you turn in a paper. 

In addition to one-on-one instruction, we offer quarterly workshops that cover a range of relevant writing topics.

To schedule an appointment at any of our campus locations please call 925.969.3530 or email
