ACADEMIC ENRICHMENT WORKSHOPS

OAS coordinates a variety of workshops that are offered Summer B, Fall, and Spring semesters. In collaboration with our campus partners, we offer interactive sessions that provide students with information and learning strategies to help them develop the skills and attributes needed to be successful in college. Workshops are coordinated by OAS student staff and we encourage student participants to provide feedback on topics that they have found most helpful in an effort to continue to strengthen our programming.

We also welcome faculty and staff to suggest or present on topics or learning strategies that support students’ academic and personal development.

To register for a workshop, please click on the name of the workshop and complete the registration form. Students must ensure they sign in at the beginning or end of the workshop to earn credit.

Promise students are required to attend all Academic Enrichment Workshops (AEWs) for their first Summer B semester. For details regarding workshop attendance requirements for fall and spring semesters, please refer to the UF Promise Canvas page. If Promise students experience scheduling conflicts with attending an OAS workshop, they must contact OAS staff to communicate any conflicts or unexpected circumstances. Additionally, students may receive credit for one (1) pre-approved academic workshop hosted by different UF departments. Promise students must provide reasonable documentation of workshop attendance and deliver it to OAS in order to receive full credit.

For SSS-specific workshop requirements, please visit the UF SSS expectation page for more information.
