Academic Resources On Campus
“Learning Enhancement Across Disciplines” (LEAD) Program
The LEAD program offers learning forums for students who wish to increase their understanding, improve their skills, and validate their mastery of concepts and techniques in a wide range of courses. LEAD sponsors learning centers and tutoring for courses currently listed at http://lead.mst.edu/assist. Our goal is to assist students in achieving their full potential.
LEAD Learning Centers
The LEAD program sponsors open-environment Learning Centers for many courses in more than ten departments. Discipline-based faculty and undergraduate peer instructors staff the centers during fixed hours each week. Students are encouraged to work in collaborative groups to solve problems and to develop solution strategies – guided and validated by the instructional experts on duty. The centers are designed not only to assist students with course content, but to also help them gain professional skills in communication, problem solving and teamwork.
LEAD Peer Tutoring
Scheduled walk-in peer tutoring is available for over twenty foundational courses at S&T. It focuses on individual and small-group interactive assistance. Our undergraduate LEAD tutors are accomplished in the course material, trained by professional staff, and communicate with LEAD faculty mentors in the associated disciplines.
Check out the current schedule of LEAD academic assistance at http://lead.mst.edu/assist or call the LEAD office at 573-341-4608 for more information.
