Academic Support Services Restructured
SOCORRO, N.M. June 6, 2013 – Over the last few years, the academic support services for student learning housed within Academic Affairs have grown, and recently, the decision was made to restructure how those services will continue to enhance learning and facilitate faculty-student interaction. The new umbrella group for these student services will be the Office for Student Learning. All academic student support services are now consolidated under The Office for Student Learning. Included in the restructuring is a series of office relocations which will allow for greater collaboration and effective streamlining of the services.
The Center for Graduate Studies, which is currently in Fitch Hall, will relocate to the second floor of the Fidel Center. The former Center for Student Success will continue to offer the same services, but from new locations. The new Office for Student Learning will oversee tutoring, the Living Learning Communities and other campus efforts to increase retention and student success.
All existing services will continue with minimal interruption during the restructuring which is set to occur throughout the summer months. The physical relocations are scheduled to be completed by July 1. Below is a list of academic support services and the key personnel to contact.
Any other changes will be announced as they happen, including further changes in services, key personnel, office location, telephone extension, and office/building relocations as soon as they are made. Students, faculty and staff should watch for these important announcements in coming weeks.
A series of information sessions will be held in the Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning (Speare 113) with the first session June 25 at 2 p.m. Any general questions will be answered during this first session. If you have any urgent questions or issues which you need addressed immediately, please contact the Academic Affairs Office at x5363.
Please note: Any student who was offered a position as a summer tutor will still have that job opportunity. Please contact Lisa Majkowski at x6168.
