ALAs work to cultivate strong academic habits and college knowledge, promote engagement with university resources, and assist students in navigating the university landscape. These services range from one-on-one meetings with students to hall-wide programming initiatives. Academic Learning Assistants are primarily supervised by a Resident Director, and will receive training and programmatic direction from the Academic Success Center staff.
