Learning Skills Vision Statement

The Learning Skills program views learning as a life-long process.  Students, regardless of their perceived capabilities, are able to learn, grow and develop at all stages of their academic career. We support this vision by providing students, staff, and faculty services to enrich, enhance, and facilitate the learning experience. 

Learning Skills Specialists can help you:

  • Learn challenging material
  • Manage you time more effectively and efficiently
  • Recognize important information in a textbook or lecture
  • Manage stress and anxiety
  • Study for and take tests successfully
  • Plan research projects and papers
