REACH's academic services and programs are divided primarily amongst four centers: the Learning Resource Center, Math Resource Center, Speed School's Academic Leadership Center and Computer Resource Center.
Location: Belknap Academic Building Rm 250
Coordinator: Julia Webb Hohmann
The Learning Resource Center (LRC) coordinates tutoring for all undergraduate courses, except math and computer courses (see below). There are three major programs coordinated by the LRC: Small Group Tutoring, Learning Assistance, and Supplemental Instruction.
Small Group Tutoring provides students with a tutor-assisted, small group environment for understanding material outside of class. Learn more about the small group tutoring services that REACH offers.
The PAL Program is based on the Supplemental Instruction (SI) Model developed in 1974 by Dr. Deanna Martin at the University of Missouri at Kansas City. All of our PAL data is submitted to the Supplemental Instruction Office in Kansas City annually to be included in their national and international research projects. Presently, there are over 350 colleges and universities both nationally and internationally that utilize the SI program model.
Data from national research studies suggest that the following goals and objectives are achieved through SI:

The Computer Resource Center (CRC) is responsible for all computer-related tutoring and academic support. Tutors staffing the center are able to field questions related to general computer issues as well as course-specific topics.
Also, the Computer Basics Seminars take place in the CRC, and are organized and led by CRC staff.
