What we do

Supportive Learning Services (SLS) offers the one-to-one support and encouragement students need to succeed in higher education.  While specialists work with students to set the agenda for their sessions, SLS best serves students who can engage in a collaborative process to set and take action towards their goals, and who are committed to using individualized support to become more effective learners.  SLS provides more concentrated academic support to students needing it, including professional tutoring, academic skills workshops, and providing quiet study spaces.
