The Mission of Academic Services
The mission of Academic Services at Cedar Crest College is to assist students in developing the skills and strategies to become confident, independent, successful, and active learners. Academic support services of peer and professional tutors, instructional assistants, advising, accommodations for students with disabilities, orientation programs, retention efforts, study skills instruction, ESL instruction, and writing support will enable students to satisfy academic standards, guide students in the transition to a college learning environment, and prepare students for experiential and life-long learning.
The resources of Academic Services are inclusive, comprehensive, and available to students at no charge. In addition to student services, Academic Services maintains open communication with faculty and supports their instruction.
Academic Services' programs reflect Cedar Crest College's mission to enhance the development of critical thinking and technological literacy while providing opportunities for developing and demonstrating leadership skills, creative abilities and social awareness.
