Learning Support Services is working to make students successful by implementing the following programs:

1. Athletic sign-in roster:

The athletic staff has been very active in getting

students to utilize the tutoring center and LRC/library. This initiative has taken place since the early part of the semester and has been very positive for both parties. During study hall hours, students can be found in the tutoring center or library working on their homework, school projects, or simply making-up an exam.

2. Supplemental Instruction:

This semester we are focusing on specialized tutoring –tutors have been assigned to several classes to assist with classroom activities, note taking, technology assistance, etc. This model focuses on building rapport with the students throughout the semester and helps eliminate the stigma of asking for help (this model also assists in building learning communities outside of the classroom). We encourage faculty to take advantage of this opportunity by contacting our tutors and letting them know if there is a particular subject area of concern. LCC9'10 293

3. Early Alert Process:

The second early alert has been initiated, we are going to make every effort (through the tutoring center) to contact each individual student who was identified in the early alert process and encourage them to seek assistance. With only 7 weeks left in the semester, it is crucial students remain engaged in their academic studies, we will work hard to communicate our services to them.

4. Extended hours:

We believe in the value of having access to resources throughout the semester, so we will make a number of resources available on the weekends. Starting Sunday, October 20

students will have access to the tutoring center every Sunday evening for computer use, internet, wireless access, and printers. Starting on November 2nd, tutors will be available to assist in multiple subject areas, so please make sure to communicate this information to your students and athletes.
