1974 – A housefellow in Sellery Hall began Help at Student Housing, also known as HASH, a program through which volunteer tutors provided academic assistance to fellow residence hall students.
1976 – The Greater University Tutoring Service was established with a grant from WSA as a parallel tutoring service to HASH for students living off campus.
1979 – GUTS and HASH were unified under one administrative staff with a Board of Advisors, now known as GUTS-HASH.
1992 – In May, the name GUTS-HASH was shortened to GUTS (The Greater University Tutoring Service). It was felt this name change more accurately reflects the university-wide services offered by our programs. Since then, minor changes in program names and staff position titles have been made.

2018-2019 – GUTS transitioned from a Registered Student Organization (RSO) funded by allocable segregated fees to an RSO funded by non-allocable segregated fees. In addition to this funding change, GUTS is now supported by a full-time professional staff member to help manage the transition, oversee GUTS administrative operations, and maintain relationships with the larger learning support community across campus.
2022 – GUTS ended a partnership with the Center for First-Year Experience and moved into the Office of Academic & Career Success in the Division for Teaching and Learning.
2023 – GUTS transitioned from a Registered Student Organization (RSO) funded by non-allocable segregated fees to a RSO funded by the University. In addition to this funding change, GUTS is now supported by 2 professional staff members in the Office of Academic & Career Success.
