Learning Assistant Program
Learning Assistants help student-athletes with time management, organizational skills, and the development or enhancement of study strategies, including: note-taking, test preparation, reading, and writing. They help students to set semester, weekly, and daily goals, and to develop a plan of action to meet those goals, in addition to evaluating progress made towards goal-achievement. Learning Assistants work with the program coordinator and the student to develop an Individual Academic Plan that meets the student’s specific academic goals and needs. They facilitate Writing Support Groups, Objective-based Structured Study groups, and other academic skill-building groups assigned by the Tutorial Coordinator.
