Since 1981, the Bentsen Learning Center Program (BLCP) at Mitchell College has provided a comprehensive academic support program for students with learning disabilities and attention deficit disorders. Based upon a philosophy of enhancing student independence and self-advocacy, the program focuses on the teaching and application of learning strategies and career readiness skills. The program consists of four levels of support, with each level designed to address the needs of students in their freshman, sophomore, junior and senior year in college. Through strong, collaborative relationships, students work with an assigned Learning Specialist to set goals and develop an individualized program to help meet those goals.
The Bentsen Learning Center Program, a personalized academic support program, partners with students with learning disabilities and attention deficit disorders to facilitate academic growth, independence, self-awareness and career readiness.
