Institute for Achievement and Learning
The Institute for Achievement and Learning is committed to the idea that each learner has a unique set of strengths and weaknesses and is dedicated to helping those individuals achieve their academic goals by maximizing the use of their strengths and minimizing the impact of their weaknesses. The Institute strives to assist students in understanding their learning competencies and develop during their time at the university. The goal of the Institute is to support students in becoming lifelong learners with the ability to utilize their newly acquired skills to meet the challenges that await them after they complete their education.
The Institute's current model incorporates cognitive instructional strategies that overlay services including group and/or individual tutoring, specialized learning communities and group activities. Students are not only assisted in understanding specific course content but also, in each instance, strategies for planning, organizing and implementing their studies. In line with the Institute's mission, each component of the support model is assessed regularly to ensure efficiency.
