Meet the JLC Staff

The Jandrisevits Learning Center (JLC) provides academic support for all SHU students. By enhancing students’ skills and knowledge, JLC tutors support course objectives and help each student develop as a lifelong learner. Academic support can play an instrumental role in student success by building self-confidence and self-awareness. As part of the JLC’s commitment to fostering self-directed learning, JLC tutors see each student as a unique learner and strive to offer learning strategies tailored to each student’s needs. Conveniently located on the lower level of the Ryan Matura Library, the JLC offers students a range of Learning Labs across a variety of subject and skill areas. Make an appointment early in the semester and begin to learn better and learn smarter!

The JLC's Mission

The JLC is SHU’s central academic support service and is open to all SHU students. Our mission is to provide academic support to strengthen student learning and empower every student to develop as self-directed learners. JLC tutors see each student as a holistic learner, paying attention to the importance of cognition as well as to the emotional aspects of learning. The JLC contributes to the SHU mission of appreciating each student’s unique qualities and preparing the student for lifelong learning.

The JLC offers academic support services at no additional cost to all SHU students:

Academic Support Services include 1-on-1 tutoring with Professional and Peer tutors; group study sessions for particular courses by Classroom Learning Assistants (CLAs); monthly workshops on specific academic and life skills; specialized Learning Labs in math, critical reading and writing, accounting, and math; and online writing support (OWL).

Special Learning Services provides instructional accommodations and services for students with documented disabilities in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. These services include testing accommodations, and assistive technology tools.

  • Empower students to grow as self-directed learners
  • Build a culture of evidence-based assessment for continuous improvement in the provision of academic support services
