Dr. Diab has asked Barb Keener to talk about Tutoring Services, Embedded Tutoring, the Solutions program, the Quick Start (pre-college) program, as well as the Jobs and Family Services Grant we recently received and how it complements our efforts on Student Success.

For many, who might not see themselves as “College Material” this is the kind of support information we need to know to help them breakdown that stigma and not only “Help Them Come to North Central State College” but to “Help Them Complete” once they get here.
