MIAD acknowledges and supports the diverse and creative learning styles of art and design students by providing tutoring and mentoring services to meet individual academic needs. This support includes writing, reading and college study strategies, research assistance, time management, as well as transitioning and getting to know MIAD.
The Learning Resource Center (LRC) is an integral part of MIAD’s Library and Learning Commons. The LRC staff can provide a listening ear for your ideas, share reading and learning strategies, help you shape your ideas on the written page, and office research suggestions and assistance. In the LRC, you can work with either a Learning Resource Specialist or a peer tutor in individualized tutoring sessions. Many students find the quiet and comfortable atmosphere on the LRC ideal for study. Peer tutors/mentors are knowledgeable and experienced in the MIAD community. They are student advocates and caring role models, possess strong academic and problem solving skills, are good listeners, patient, compassionate, responsible, and dedicated to helping other students discover their potential to succeed at MIAD.
