Boston College Fact Book 1996 - 1997
The Academic Development Center (ADC) exists to support and enhance all
aspects of academic excellence by helping undergraduates, graduate students,
and faculty improve learning quality and teaching effectiveness. The ADC,
which opened its doors in September 1991, is located on the second floor
of O'Neill Library in the Eileen M. and John M. Connors, Jr. Learning Center.
The ADC is a comprehensive, inclusive resource serving all of
the University's students and faculty. To address the needs of the great
majority of Boston College students, the Center provides tutoring for more
than 60 courses, including calculus, statistics, biology, chemistry, nursing,
accounting, and classical and foreign languages. In addition, graduate students
in English serve as writing tutors. (All ADC tutors are recommended and
approved by their relevant academic departments; most are graduate students,
juniors, or seniors.)
The Center offers programs designed to challenge the most academically
talented, highest achieving students - as well as programs designed to support
those who are least prepared and most academically challenged. One of the
ADC's three professional staff members assists students with learning disabilities,
helping to ensure their academic success at Boston College.
Tutoring, and all other academic support services, are free of charge
to all Boston College students and instructors.
The Center also sponsors seminars, workshops, and discussions for faculty
and graduate teaching fellows on strategies for successful teaching and
learning. Through these and other activities, the Academic Development Center
plays an increasingly important role in enhancing the quality of academic
life at Boston College.
