The mission of the Academic Skills Center (ASC) is to provide free, accessible academic support across all disciplines that empowers students as they strive for academic excellence. The ASC staff recognizes the uniqueness of each individual in Heritage’s diverse student body. We believe that scholars bring a wealth of experience with them and that our primary duty is to help build bridges between students and the various cultures and expectations of academic discourses.
As part of each student’s academic support network, we facilitate independent learning, cultivate confidence, and build a community where learning is understood as a lifelong journey of personal growth. We provide a relaxed, supportive environment where students can work and study collaboratively, receive one-on-one peer tutoring, and participate in tutor-led group study sessions and workshops tailored to the content of courses and students’ needs.
