Welcome to the CAL!
The Muskingum College CAL has the opportunity to emphasize the development of lifelong learning skills through its commitment to a learning strategies philosophy. The professional staff of the center helps students develop strategies necessary for success in post-secondary course work. Equipping all students with the tools to know how to learn in a variety of contexts enhances the possibility for student success. (Dehne, 1990)
The CAL (CAL) at Muskingum College provides academic support to the student population through four programs:
PLUS Program which provides students identified as learning-disabled with individual and group learning strategies instruction embedded within course content.
Learning Strategies and Resources Program (LSR) which offers weekly strategy workshops, weekly personalized strategy instruction, and one-time sessions for any student who requests assistance or is considered academically at-risk.
English Support Program (ESP) which allows non-native speakers of English to begin their studies at Muskingum in a combined curriculum, with regular classes, individual tutorials, and English as Second Language courses.
