The Academic Literacies Center (ALC) is dedicated to a holistic look at academic barriers and finding avenues past them. These barriers include learning styles, visual problems, medication issues, reading obstacles, presentation anxiety, and trauma, among others.
The principal goal of the Academic Literacies Center is to address academic literacy and positively affect student learning, retention, and the learning environment. It provides students opportunities to be successful in specific courses, specific content areas, and/or finding ways past known or unknown existing barriers.
