The mission of the HCC Learning Support Center (LSC) is to engage and empower students to become independent, resourceful learners. The intention is for the LSC to become a hub where students, learning support specialists, and faculty work as a team to reach common academic goals. Fostering an optimal learning environment for supplemental instruction, the LSC will offer resources which both students and faculty may rely on to impact course success levels.
The LSC provides academic support to all students taking credit and non-credit courses at HCC.
