Learning Resources

Literacy and Learning Resources includes a Writing Lab, a Math Clinic, Disability Support Services for special academic needs (in partnership with the Office of the Dean of Students), and tutoring in a range of subjects, currently including English, accounting, economics, chemistry, physics, biology, psychology, languages, and computer science.  Professional and peer tutors serve both undergraduate and graduate students.  Appointments are strongly recommended, especially for the Writing Lab, Math Clinic, and Disability Support Services.  Every effort will be made to accommodate walk-in students, but planning ahead will allow for more effective, personal support.
