How do I refer students to the Learning Center?

Learning Center receptionists in-person and via zoom can help students access center services most appropriate for them. Faculty who prefer to consult our professional staff about helping with particular academic needs are invited to contact staff directly via email or telephone.

How can I arrange to have someone visit my class?

Our professional staff welcome opportunities to introduce Learning Center services to your students, emphasizing those resources most applicable to your course. Our Academic Coaches also present Learning Skills workshops to classes, designing them in ways that help students apply key skills to your curriculum or to particular assignments.
