Academic Wellbeing

Academic Wellbeing guides students to the completion of their educational goals by creating an accessible, responsive, constructive, learner-centered space to become active, independent, and confident learners. We help students develop academic skills and strategies, strengthen personal responsibility, and promote an understanding of university culture and effective decision-making. 

We engage students in creative and mind-enriching activities, so they can enjoy learning and create a strong sense of academic wellbeing. Our goal is for students to leave our offices better than when they came in and to assist them in making decisions. Questions such as, "How much longer do I work on this paper?", "Should I start studying for the exam I have tomorrow instead?", "Is it worth it for me to skip my morning class so I can finish both?" or "Do I dare ask my professor for an extension?" Academic Wellbeing is where our students can get help answering these questions.

Academic Wellbeing can also assist students with:
  • Advice on academic and administrative policies, procedures, and grievances
  • Support with Committee on Academic Status petitions
  • Communicating with your professors during an emergency
  • Information on university and community resources
Staff members are available to meet with any member of the W&M community. We are happy to discuss individual circumstances, the petition process, and answer general questions. Schedule an appointment through our scheduling portal link above.
