Learning Resources Center

​Learning Resource Center​​

Located on the first floor of the César E. Chávez Library, the Learning Resource Center provides equitable access to academic support services, experiential learning spaces, and technology resources that strengthen and sustain student success.

The Learning Resource Center (LRC) houses four academic support services: Reading and Writing Center (RWC), Tutoring Center (TC), ESL Lab, and the Open Computer Lab (OCL), where students can work independently or request one-to-one tutoring in a wide variety of academic subject areas.

The LRC's tutoring centers are certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). The CRLA is an international authority that certifies organizations and individual tutors who meet its professional training and review standards.

LRC provides all services at zero cost for any student taking at least one course within our district. Visit the LRC for the following services:
