Learning Center

We're Your Learning Center

Fresno State’s Learning Center is a space which encourages students to grow intellectually as critical thinkers. We advance student success by actively using effective strategies to improve content understanding and course grades. Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leaders and Tutors do not teach, rather facilitate students' learning of difficult topics within historically challenging courses or subjects. Students work one-on-one with a SupportNet Academic Coach who provides individualized support addressing unique student needs. The Learning Center aims to boldly integrate the culture and values of each student to inspire a community of life-long learners.
