Our Offices

LAC Name sign


The LAC was formed on UC’s campus in 2007, and it has undergone a radical transformation over the past six years. Our inaugural programs, Peer Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction, have grown by more than fivefold and now serve students in every college. Three years ago we added Academic Coaching to provide students with transferrable academic skills, and two years ago we initiated our first BEARchats cohort to help new international students adjust to life as a UC student.

We have gradually expanded not only our services, but our physical presence on campus; last year we added the Academic Writing Center to our roster of programs. This office is housed across the campus, in McMicken Hall, and offers significant online student support. We’re excited about our growth, and we hope that students continue to help us enhance and improve our services in the coming years.
