Additional Academic Support Services
 

  • Workshops
    At faculty invitation, the LRC director provides workshops to first-year seminars designed to motivate students to change their study habits to adapt to college-level work and make them aware of LRC services. Other workshops, targeted to topics such as study abroad or a particular learning skill, such as note taking, are also provided.

     
  • NSF-STEM Grant Peer Mentoring Program
    The LRC administers the NSF-STEM Grant Peer Mentoring Program, which provides academic and social enrichment for students in the program, oversees students’ progress in their individualized experiential learning modules, gathers reporting data, and organizes the committee of faculty mentors.
     
  • Group Work
    The LRC provides regularly-scheduled Guided Study Groups and Exam Preparation Sessions, primarily for gatekeeper courses. Supplemental Instruction or SI also is available for select courses.
     
  • Composition Support
    The Composition Support Program embeds writing tutors in first-year composition courses.
     
  • College Writing Awards
    The LRC administers the college-wide writing awards. Nominations are made by faculty. There are four Junior/Senior Writing Awards—one for each School. Two awards are given to students in first-year composition courses.
     
  • Reflection on Learning
    The LRC administers the optional summer writing assignment for first-year students. The prompts are designed to encourage student reflection on learning and academic goals.
