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.
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
