*The Learning Center is now operating remotely*

The mission statement of the Learning Center is complementary to the mission of the College, which is to develop and maintain a high quality professional undergraduate education. To this end, the mission of the Learning Center is to assist our students to become independent learners, so they can ultimately use their skills to decipher, appreciate and manipulate related and advanced levels of various subject areas, and also use their knowledge to negotiate real-life circumstances.
