- We view our position and reporting relationship in Academic Affairs as a strength. The SLC staff frequently consults teaching faculty to help us identify quality tutors, to articulate the needs of particular students in need of academic support, as well as to keep us informed on curriculum modifications. Our position in Academic Affairs enables us to effectively support academic initiatives yet still allows us to work across division lines. For example, we carry out academic outreach to students in Strategies to Eliminate Probationary Status (STEPS).
