Academic Support Center earns national award
National accolades are coming to The Citadel Academic Support Center.
The National College Learning Center Association (NCLCA) Board of Directors named the Academic Support Center a 2011 recipient of the Frank L. Christ Outstanding Learning Center Award for a four-year college or university. The award will be presented on Sept. 29, at the association’s national conference in Indianapolis, Ind.
Named for the founder of the Winter Institutes for Learning Assistance Professionals, the Frank L. Christ award recognizes outstanding work done by college learning centers to foster student growth and development. Each year, the association may recognize a single two-year college and one four-year college or university.
The Citadel Academic Center offers eight programs to support undergraduate and graduate students develop successful learning strategies, improved math and reading skills, and to enhance academic performance in all subject areas. The center also offers programs to assist to students with disabilities and cadet athletes.
The center prides itself on its commitment to students and to faculty. All tutors and leaders go through extensive training that meets the requirements/recommendations of the College Reading and Learning Association as well as the International Center for Supplemental Instruction.
“The Academic Support Center’s programs not only teach students how to succeed in specific courses but teach academic skills across the curriculum,” said Director Jane Warner. “Our staff of four full-time and 45 part-time employees is the primary reason for the success of the Academic Support Center. We are fortunate to have a group of individuals that work together to provide quality academic support to students.”
