Mission Statement

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 effective skills necessary for achieving academic and personal learning goals.

Vision Statement

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.

Learning Outcomes

  • Increase services to students proportional to the university's enrollment growth in first and second-year students
  • Continue to be certified to help students become independent learners through facilitated peer-interactions
  • Tutored students will effectively apply learning strategies and achieve increased academic performance and retention
  • Peer student tutors will participate in professional development opportunities
