West Virginia University at Parkersburg is moving its campus Tutoring Center to a more convenient location for its students. The move will take the center from the lower level of the college to the main floor, next to the college library. This move is expected to be completed by the beginning of the Spring 2017 semester.
“We believe that the increased visibility next to the library will allow more students to access to the center,” said Dr. Hank Dunn, WVU Parkersburg senior vice president. “This will help increase our student success rates.”
The new location will take over approximately one third of the space currently occupied by the library, but it will not impact the library’s functionality, officials said.
“With increased electronic usage and most books and periodicals online, the library isn’t decreasing its capacity or its commitment to providing high-quality access to materials,” said Dunn.
The college’s tutoring provides free services to students who need assistance with academic progress. The center offers peer, faculty and volunteer tutors to help students while also offering computer-assisted learning, multimedia resources and online programs. All WVU Parkersburg students are eligible for two hours of tutoring every week. Tutoring is also available through Google Hangouts sessions.
