The Center for Academic Resources

From free academic coaching to writing guidance to tutoring, we're here for every step of your success story!

Welcome to CARs! Our staff is here to help you succeed as you navigate through your time at Simpson, whether on the Indianola, the West Des Moines campus, or online.

We are here to support your learning experience at Simpson! We know that students who engage with campus resources such as CARs, are more likely to achieve their goals, succeed, and earn their degrees.

Our work with students is comparable to the following examples:

  • Athletes have coaches
  • Musicians have voice or instrumental lessons
  • Debaters have debate coaches
  • Actors have directors
  • Writers have editors

It is what we do at Simpson. You engage and work with those who are invested in your success!
