The LARC is dedicated to collaborating with faculty in our mutual efforts towards student academic success, student support, retention and graduation. If we are to achieve our goal of being able to assist all students in all disciplines, we must work closely with the instructors who know those students best. If you would like to use our services, or if you have any suggestions for resources beyond those available on our website, please contact us. We welcome your comments and suggestions.
LARC Intro Tours or Special Presentations
To request a LARC Intro Tour, please use the following form: LARC Intro Presentations
We do hope to offer faculty workshops (writing-based or prompt/assignment-specific) and special presentations (study skills, time management, etc) in the near future. Currently, we're focusing on our hybrid tutoring operations and with limited staffing, may not be able to provide this service. Please contact Loriann Negri, the LARC Director, at email@example.com if you'd like to discuss future workshops or special presentations.

To inform your students about the LARC and the services that we offer, please use the following statement on your course syllabi or add the LARC Canvas Resource Link to your Canvas Course (just search "LARC" in the Canvas Commons!):
The SSU Learning and Academic Resources Center (LARC) is located on the first floor of the University Library, and houses three academic support programs for students: the Tutorial Program, Supplemental Instruction Program, and the Writing Center. LARC academic support services are available both in-person and online. All LARC peer educators provide a dynamic, supportive learning environment for undergraduate and graduate students. The Tutorial Program provides one-on-one peer tutoring for a variety of subjects, and the Supplemental Instruction (SI) Program provides study groups for targeted class sections. The Writing Center provides one-on-one peer tutoring for students at all levels, in all disciplines, the Engl 99T program for weekly student support, and peer draft workshops for some classes.
Come chat with us about how you can get help on your essays, study for math tests, and find collaborative study groups for those challenging courses. We are here to support you in being a successful SSU student! Visit the LARC website for more information about supported courses and services, and to make a tutoring appointment.
Writing Center Workshops
Writing Center Workshops focus on a specific project, paper, or topic. We have a very limited number of spaces/staffing for workshops but are available to discuss possibilities in certain circumstances. Please fill out our workshop request form at least three weeks in advance to allow for scheduling of staff, and for staff preparation.
