“Transforming Learning to Enhance Student Success”
According to our Strategic Plan, Cal State Fullerton will “improve student persistence, increase graduation rates University –wide, and narrow the achievement gap for underrepresented students.” The University Learning Assistance Centers and Programs (LAC&P) are positioned strategically to connect these intended outcomes with our students’ successful engagement in high impact practices by putting ‘students in the company of mentors and advisors as well as peers who share intellectual interests and are committed to seeing that students succeed.’
Working with a knowledgeable mathematics major in the Math Tutoring Center, having a paper checked by a peer writing tutor in the Writing Center or the University Learning Center prior to turning it, or doing homework and getting some one-on-one tutoring in the Opportunity Center for Science and Mathematics are all opportunities for formal and informal feedback. The LAC&P support the fundamental educational truism – that repeated practice is a key to achievement.
By making tutoring appointments or scheduling time to drop into one of the Learning Assistance Centers and Programs, students are making an investment in the activity as well as making a commitment to their major and their college. These wise choices require that students make daily decisions to take purposeful actions in pursuit of their goals and dreams, and provide them with opportunities to see how what they are learning applies to different settings, on and off campus.
