Academic Support Center Guiding Principles

  1. ASC is student centered: The ASC is committed to maximizing our resources to deliver services to the greatest number of students.

  2. ASC assists students to achieve their academic and personal success: We realize that if students are to enjoy academic, social, and personal success, they must believe in themselves, be actively engaged in their learning, and see the connection between what students learn today and who they want to become tomorrow.

  3. ASC supports ongoing professional and paraprofessional staff development and training: Professional and paraprofessional staff members participate in ongoing training.

  4. ASC engages in ongoing evaluation and assessment: The ASC's programs and services are evaluated in an ongoing basis using student satisfaction surveys as the primary assessment instruments. We value student opinions and we work hard to ensure student satisfaction based on our policies, procedures and available resources.
