PLUS Program

PLUS Program Staff

Professional staff work one-on-one to personalize learning strategies.


Under the administrative oversight of the Provost is a well-trained staff that includes an Executive Director, administrative personnel, and professional Learning Consultants who have Bachelor or Master's degrees.

The academic success of students in the PLUS Program can be attributed in part to the professional staff who partner with students as they engage in academic pursuits. PLUS Learning Consultants are knowledgeable about learning differences and associated learning strategies. They are trained and skilled in the customization and personalization of the application of learning strategies to students who learn differently. 

Professional staff are selected for their academic preparation across disciplines, their understanding of college-level expectations and academic structures, their ability to build strong positive relationships with students and their interest in, and appreciation for, working one-on-one with students with diverse learning profiles.
