    The THINK TANK is the "go to" place for academic support for all UA students. Students count on THINK TANK, day and night, to learn new study strategies and access critical support in math, science, writing, business, and languages. Drop-in, individual and group sessions are available at four campus locations and online.

  • Using the THINK TANK Impacts Retention

    Over the last five enrollment years, first-time full-time freshmen who made use of THINK TANK services have demonstrated higher institutional retention rates than non-users and all UA first-time, full-time freshmen.

The THINK TANK tells its story of academic success in various ways. Here are some Highlights of THINK TANK data.

Did you know -- Using the THINK TANK Impacts Retention

For the last five enrollment years, first-time full-time freshmen who made use of THINK TANK services have demonstrated higher institutional retention rates (4-8% higher) than the official UA rate. When compared specifically to first-time full-time freshmen who do not utilize THINK TANK services, there is an even larger jump in retention (7-11%).




“I love coming to Think Tank. I always get my work done, and leave happy with more acquired knowledge. THINK TANK ROCKS!!!!” –Anonymous

“The UA GWC has been the most collegial yet rigorous writing workshop I have experienced in my academic career. THINK TANK facilitators modeled the process and strategies for us during the fall, and we have been successfully working on our own into the spring. The group introduced me to people I hope will be lifelong colleagues, and kicked my thinking/writing up to a higher level of confidence and rigor. Wish I had found this resource sooner, and I highly recommend the GWCs be expanded and continued.”  Elisabeth R., Doctoral candidate; Teaching, Learning and Sociocultural Studies

“Coming to the THINK TANK is part of my routine, and that consistency has definitely helped my study habits” – Ashley T., sophomore, Engineering
