The Learning Center (TLC) is Roxbury Community College's primary academic support service department. A visit to Roxbury Community College's Learning Center is a student's first step towards realizing their academic goals. The Learning Center offers learning assistance programs and services that provide students with a systematic approach to help ensure their academic success. Our philosophy is one of student empowerment. We place students in the center of the learning process, help them understand themselves as learners and provide them with academic support resources necessary to accomplish their academic goals. We understand and respect the unique needs of adult learners and believe in their ability to achieve their academic goals. We are committed to helping students gain an understanding of their own strengths and areas for improvement. We provide students with some of the appropriate resources and as much staff support as we can along with flexible access to our resources to help them improve their classroom performance and build upon their strengths. In addition to the TLC's programs and services, we provide academic accommodations for RCC students with documented disabilities.
