Support When You Need it

Michael Bergeron, alumnus

“IPFW took a risk, put me on probation, and afforded me the opportunity to succeed,” says alumnus Michael Bergeron.


For some students, the transition to college life isn’t easy. They may find themselves caught between competing obligations at work or at home, or they may simply need a little extra help making the adjustment to college coursework.


But no matter what challenges a struggling student may face, we’re here to help.


The Centers for Academic Success and Achievement (CASA) offers a huge variety of services and assistance to struggling students, from tutoring and supplemental instruction to help with study skills and writing. The Center for Women and Returning Adults (CWRA) provides support services and advocacy for continuing adult learners. And the Office of the Dean of Students advocates for students at risk for dropping out.


“Seventeen years later, after obtaining my master’s degree, I am a successful trauma therapist because you believed in me,” Bergeron says.
