The Learning Assistance and Resource Center (LARC) strives to provide quality academic support services which help students become independent, active learners who achieve academic success. The LARC aims to promote cognitive development in a diversity of student populations through assessing and teaching the affective skills necessary for achieving academic and personal learning goals.
The pursuit of a quality education, although contingent upon professors and administrators, is essentially a venture of self-reliance. At the Learning Assistance and Resource Center, we envision a University populated with independent learners imbued with a desire to learn, to improve, and to progress. Our tutors promote the critical thinking skills necessary for students to find unique and creative solutions to achieve academic success and actively pursue career goals.
Students will learn how to effectively apply study skills and learning strategies to become independent, active learners who achieve academic success.
Students will demonstrate persistence in higher education to successfully complete coursework and fully matriculate.
Peer tutors will demonstrate above average performance in identified enhancement indicators and be able to reflect on their roles as peer learners and tutors.
