The Principles that Guide our Work
We recognize that learning is a developmental process and that academic support must be appropriate, given individual students' strengths and needs. It is essential that our work with students and faculty support the university's academic standards and mission and that supporting students' development as competent, responsible, reflective, and self-confident learners is vital to their success not only at the university, but also in their future careers and in their lives as citizens. Ongoing assessment and evaluation must inform our work with students.
