Our Mission

Our tutoring program has been internationally certified LCby the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). Certification means that the Learning Center meets internationally accepted standards for tutor selection, tutor training, and tutor evaluation, as well as for overall program management and evaluation.

Since its inception, the goal has been active and collaborative learning that leads all participants — students and tutors — to improve as critical thinkers. The LC promotes student-centered activities and services that develop appreciation and respect for diverse learning styles and cultural backgrounds.

The LC exists in partnership with other student support organizations on the RCTC campus to expand opportunities for students to grow and develop as learners. The LC also believes in strong partnerships with faculty members and course work in the various disciplines.



The Learning Center is coordinated by faculty members:
