As part of University College, the Bepko Learning Center
’s programs are based on a belief that highly successful students can play an integral role in the academic development of their peers. Collaborative learning, role modeling, peer interaction, and peer support are all components of this process. Mentoring is different from tutoring in that students are not provided with the answers to their questions but are guided in the right direction by their mentor and by collaborative interaction with other students. Through this process, students learn valuable skills that will be beneficial to them throughout their academic careers. The Bepko Learning Center
provides help to students through three different components: academic enrichment, academic mentoring, and tutorial support.
