Welcome to Learning Development & Success

Learning Skills LogoAs part of the Student Experience portfolio, the Learning Development and Success team offers resources and supports to all students at Western. Counsellors and staff members help students cope with the demands of post-secondary learning, helping to identify strengths and develop new skills and strategies for success.  Counsellors also work with students to alleviate academic stress and anxiety, and to develop positive motivation and confidence toward learning.  This service is available for successful students wanting to maintain their already strong skills and those having academic difficulties.
