That’s why Washington University in St. Louis created Cornerstone: The Center for Advanced Learning.
At Cornerstone, undergraduates have access to the support services they need to succeed academically. When students want to take that extra step to move from comprehension to mastery, they can find the support they need at Cornerstone.
Cornerstone provides access to academic peer mentoring, giving highly motivated students structured assistance that improves comprehension, as well as grades.
In addition, Cornerstone assists students with essential study and test-taking skills, disability resources, and even financial aid in specific circumstances. Cornerstone connects first-generation college students to leadership programs and offers academic, research and career opportunities.
Cornerstone works. Research shows students in Cornerstone programs receive higher grades than their counterparts. Thousands of students take advantage of Cornerstone programs each year.
