Center for Learning Resources Receives Top Tutoring Award

UNH’s Center for Learning Resources has been awarded the “Tutoring Program Award of Excellence” by the Association of Tutoring Professionals, one of the top two professional awards in the field.

The purpose of the award is to “recognize tutorial programs that exemplify excellence in training, scope of purpose and range of tutorial support to students within the academic setting.” It is given to one institution annually.

Last year, the award was won by the University of South Carolina, an institution with an enrollment of more than 32,000 students.

The CLR was visited more than 24,000 times last year.

Over the past several years, the CLR has grown exponentially and now serves more than half of the University’s undergraduate and graduate students each year in West Haven, Lyme and Orange. Tutoring is available six days and 65 hours a week by appointment or on a walk-in basis. In 2014-2015, students visited the CLR a combined 24,000 times.

“This impressive achievement is a testament to our talented tutors and the dedicated leadership in the CLR,” said President Steve Kaplan. “Students who visit the CLR achieve an incredible success rate of 87 percent in classes for which they receive assistance.”

The CLR is led by director Debbie Malewicki, and interim associate director Leon Weinmann and is made up of more than 70 professional and peer tutors. Malewicki will accept the award on behalf of the University at the Association’s national conference in Chicago next month.
