Student Success Center
The goal of tutoring is to encourage independent learning and improve effective learning skills for academic success. Show up prepared by bring your course materials, lecture notes, having some questions ready, and most importantly be ready to actively participate to ensure successful learning sessions. Tutors will help you learn concepts and will not do your homework, so be prepared to focus on concepts rather than mere techniques. This requires active student participation when tutors are asking questions and guiding their peers. Tutors are trained and knowledgeable peers, and are not expected to have every solution.
HEFAS' UndocuSTEM is a new Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) program in partnership with the STEM Success Program, to support and provide resources to make STEM more accessible for undocumented students.
VIDA's mission is to empower students to become agents of change in their communities and beyond; to foster education that meets the needs of the communities we serve; and to help develop pathways to meaningful participation in local, state, and federal government decision making processes.
