Welcome to the ASC Student Resource Portal!
All ASC services are available online during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Academic Success Center has gathered--and produced--a variety of resources to support you.
This is a work in progress and we will be adding resources, tutorials and workshops to this guide as they are developed. If you would like something added to the resources on this page, please reach out to us. We would like to grow this portal to support the student community at ULV. Please bookmark this site so you have access to the latest information.
The Academic Success Center is now part of the Learning Commons at ULV! The Learning Commons, comprised of the Academic Success Center, Wilson Library, and the Center for Teaching and Learning, is a vibrant, collaborative space on campus which supports the learning, teaching, scholarship, and wellness needs of students, staff, faculty, and alumni.
In the Learning Commons you can access the following support:
Through a peer-to-peer model of interaction and academic support, the Academic Success Center strives to develop confident, equipped, and engaged learners within the university. Focusing our efforts on growth and development of students, faculty, and staff, the ASC utilizes diverse and innovative strategies which not only promote the intellectual pursuits of all community members, but also provides systemic support which enhances retention at the university. Providing a patient, positive, and approachable atmosphere for all community members--and clients of the ASC--nurtures access to services which empower and encourage individuals to reach their full potential as learners, staff members, and professionals at ULV.
Every collaboration with faculty, staff, and students; professional development opportunity offered; task completed; decision made; and conversation will serve the goal of nurturing the skills needed for each student to feel confident, acquire knowledge, pursue wellness, and succeed throughout the course of their life.
Data-driven decisions serve as the foundation of efforts to challenge the status quo, collaborate across disciplines, and create new programs and strategies to meet the unique needs of each student we serve and prepare those students to proceed with curiosity and ingenuity.
Long-term impact on student success and continuous assessment of our efforts are the foundations of all programs and processes. Setting aside thoughts of the way it has always been done and embracing mistakes empowers all members of the department to lean into the learning curve, improve processes, and discover new more effective paths toward the realization of the department’s vision.
The different ways we experience the world are an asset to the community. All are encouraged to bring their authentic selves to the center—as both employees and learners. Within our walls, everyone is important, safe, accepted, and valued.
The university was not designed to support the growth and development of everyone. Therefore, we acknowledge the contribution of unique cultural perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds to our collective knowledge; empower stakeholders to build on the richness of their contribution; and actively combat educational inequity (and all other forms of inequity).
