CAS members present at the NCLCA annual conference

Julie Clevenger, executive director, Center for Academic Success, and Jamie McCoy, student academic support programs coordinator, were invited to present a session titled “Academic Recovery Programs for At-Risk Students” at the National College Learning Center Association (NCLCA) annual conference in Louisville, Kentucky on Oct. 6. The session introduced participants to the Academic Recovery Plan (ARP) which the LLCC Center for Academic Success developed as a way to address the academic and life obstacles that many students face when trying to return to school. The session also provided a history of the development of the ARP program, the various departments involved, a walk-through of how the program works, including documentation and skill enhancement areas, and an examination of our institution’s longitudinal data. The NCLCA annual conference is attended by learning center directors and tutoring coordinators from both two- and four-year institutions located all around the world.
