About Us

The Learning Center programs are

  • offered at no cost to students
  • confidential
  • attended by more than 65% of all freshmen
  • used on a regular basis by Curators, Brooks, and Bright Flight scholars.


Our goal is to provide instruction that deepens and enriches students’ understanding of the classes in which they enroll. Through peer and professional instruction, we increase students’ satisfaction with their educational and interpersonal experiences at MU. Just as faculty members need colleagues to review their papers or research findings, students need tutors, teachers, and peers to review, analyze, and assist them with papers they write and the academic problems they encounter. Our mission, therefore, is to enhance students’ academic performance, deepen their satisfaction with their academic experiences, and increase the retention and graduation rates of students who participate in our services.
