Located in APEX, the Learning Center functions as a support service for any College of Wooster student seeking academic assistance.
Its central mission is to enrich, enhance, and support students' educational experiences. Services are designed to help students improve their overall academic performance and to assist them in achieving their academic goals.
The staff works in scheduled sessions with individual students to develop and establish strategies that promote the principles of effective learning. This type of support is available for all students, not just those in academic difficulty.
The Learning Center is also the initial contact for students with learning or physical disabilities. It is the duty of the College to provide full access and inclusion of all qualified students in its programs. In compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the College of Wooster identifies a student with a disability as anyone who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activity.
The Center offers a wide range of services and accommodations for students with disabilities, and students are encouraged to visit the Learning Center early in their academic careers to secure appropriate accommodations.
The Learning Center is committed to a philosophy of independence for students. Students are encouraged to make use of the services of the Learning Center as support to accomplish their academic goals.
