The Office of Multicultural Student Services

Welcome to the Academic Enrichment Center

Our Mission

The mission of the Academic Enrichment Center is to guide WSU students in developing strategies and skills to become active, independent, and confident learners in our increasingly multicultural campus, nation, and world.


The Academic Enrichment Center helps students improve academic performance by providing free tutoring, academic-related workshops, handouts on professional, career, and college success strategies, and a computer lab. Tutors, lab monitors, and experts on strategies proven to help students succeed are available to help students reach their goals. The AEC, working in close cooperation with the student centers, also provides referral services for students with questions or needs that may be better met by other offices on campus.

The Academic Enrichment Center is located in the Compton Union Building 421.

All students are welcome!
