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.
Ann Seavey, M.Ed.

The ASC provides small-group tutoring with a trained peer tutor for a variety of courses, including most core classes and language classes.
The Writing Center
Our office is home to Gordon’s Writing Center, where trained peer writing tutors meet with students about their papers and essays, guiding them at any point in the writing process, from brainstorming to final revision.
