Academic Support Center

Letter from the Director

Welcome to the Academic Support Center! We believe that “the community of learners is made richer through the contributions of all students.” To that end we make every effort to address individual student needs through a variety of general academic support services.

The ASC is also the designated Disability Office at Gordon; as such, we promote accessibility and support for students with documented disabilities. We value the role of each student as collaborators in Gordon’s living-learning environment.

Whether it’s through tutoring, workshops, academic accommodations or one-to-one advising, the ASC is here to serve you and to help make your Gordon experience all that it can be. 

Blessings,
Ann Seavey, M.Ed.

2014 ASC Bookmark Award

BookmarkThe ninth annual ASC Bookmark Award was presented to Barry Loy at the ASC Appreciation Brunch. Each year the ASC chooses a professor or staff member who, based on staff observation and student feedback, embodies and supports the ASC mission, demonstrates excellence in their discipline, is able to support and encourage a diversity of learners.

The bookmarks are then given as an appreciation gift to tutors and others who have worked with the ASC  during the current academic year, and are also displayed in the ASC. Barry joins a group of esteemed colleagues reaching back to 2006; past recipients include Marv Wilson, Dorothy Boorse, Peter Stine, Peggy Hothem, Ted Hildebrandt, Lori Ambacher, Graeme Bird and Kaye Cook.
