The mission of the Learning Assistance Centers is to foster the development of critical-thinking skills and positive attitudes that enable students to become successful, lifelong learners. Skills-based tutoring is used to accomplish this goal.

Free, drop-in assistance is provided by Learning Consultants who offer a variety of specialties. A Writing Consultant is on duty at all times during operating hours, and a Mathematics and/or Sciences Consultant is on duty during most of those hours. (See links to specific schedules below.) Learning Consultants also help to strengthen basic skills, such as test preparation, computer/Internet use, reading, and research.

The LAC is closed during fall and spring breaks as well as between semesters and on holidays. For special closing, see the “Notice” above.
