Faculty with students who need some general help with basic skills and content in lower division courses should direct the students to the Center for Academic Program Support in Zimmerman Library. The Center has trained tutors available to help students with writing, research, computation, and study skills difficulties. The Center also offers a series of workshops for new students. For more information go to CAPS
The Dean of Students is available to help with any student disciplinary problems. Faculty should first consult the Pathfinder, which details expectations for student conduct in class and other issues, such as plagiarism. The Dean of Students is also helpful in addressing other personal (family, financial, housing, etc) difficulties students may encounter. For more information go to www.unm.edu/~doso
