Academic Success Conference 

Eastern Illinois University is committed to the success of our students and this includes their academic involvement and commitments on campus.

In collaboration with the Academic Success Center, the Faculty Fellows Program, New Student and Family Programs, and many other offices on campus, University Housing and Dining Services is organizing an Academic Success Conference for our students. The conference has been postponed and more information will be available in the future. 

The conference will cover a range of topics including campus resources, study tips, test anxiety, time management, organizational skills, and much more. 

Our Keynote speaker is Dr. Mark Bayer Assistant Professor of Management with the School of Business. For more information about Dr. Bayer, visit his faculty profile
