How do I refer students to the LAC?

LAC receptionists can help students access the LAC 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 LAC services to your students, emphasizing those resources most applicable to your course. Our Learning Skills Specialists also present Learning Skills workshops to classes, designing them in ways that help students apply key skills to your curriculum or to particular assignments.
