The new Academic Success Center at Minneapolis College opened its doors in time for the more than 6,700 students attending the College this fall.

The Center brings a $2.5 million, 16,400 square-foot ultra-modern space, equipped with the latest technology and services, to its downtown Minneapolis campus. Nearly 60 part-time tutors join the director and seven full-time staff members to staff the center.

This space offers students tutoring in writing, math, biology, nursing and an array of additional subjects, a new computer lab with tutoring support to assist students in building digital literacy, a speech practice lab with recording equipment, individual and group study areas and course placement testing and tutoring.

“The Academic Success Center is committed to providing a modern, comfortable and safe learning environment with state-of-the-art equipment and technology,” said Dr. Gail O’Kane, vice president of Academic Affairs.

The services are available to Minneapolis College students at no cost.

“Our goal is to assist students in learning more effectively and independently and support the College’s more than 110 educational programs which are organized into eight Schools within the College,” said O’Kane.

The Center also offers regular mini-sessions on topics in mathematics, English, chemistry, study skills and digital literacy.
