Academic Support Center, McCutchan Hall
The Academic Support Center is a complimentary service designed to facilitate the learning experience for students while at the same time enhance the content knowledge/pedagogy of the tutors.
- "Complimentary" means the client utilizes our services in addition to working closely with faculty.
- "Facilitate" means tutors utilize principles of controlled floundering to facilitate the client's active learning of content, as opposed to passive direct instruction.
Our focus is primarily on offering support for level 100 and 200 courses with high rates of failure and/or a significant demand for tutorial assistance, thereby increasing the retention of freshmen and sophomores so they can make it to their "major" classes.
