About Us

Our mission is to help all Yale undergraduates become active, empowered learners in their academic lives at Yale. Through peer mentoring and interactive workshops, we hope to provide you with the tools to help propel you toward your goals.

Community Values

The Academic Strategies Program offers one-on-one peer mentoring and workshops throughout the academic year. During a mentoring session, you may talk through your academic work and create a strategic plan to help you achieve your goals. Our interactive workshops offer practical advice and strategies for common academic challenges, such as, time management, tackling problem sets, and studying for exams.

Events & Activities

Join our Yale Connect group to explore all upcoming workshops and activities, including "Organization and Time Management for Online Learning," "Tackling Problem Sets," and "Strategies for Reading Literature."


Make sure you subscribe to our weekly newsletter to receive updates for the week ahead, including a schedule of workshops, key information for academic success, and opportunities to become more involved at Yale.
