• The overarching objective of Learning Support at Lee University is to provide instructional assistance and learning opportunities for students. This goal is accomplished through the procurement and utilization of enhanced technological services for instruction and student monitoring and through facilitation of supplemental instruction sessions, especially in courses that have been identified as being traditionally challenging for students. Additionally, a strong network of student support is being built across campus through collaboration with the Center for Teaching Excellence to assist in faculty development and through coordination with the Lee University Writing Center and Math Lab.
