Learning Specialists

The Learning Enhancement team assists KCU students with the development and strengthening of skills to promote confidence and self-directed learning. Students are encouraged to set goals and work toward accomplishing them through a mixture of individual coaching, identification and utilization of resources, and targeted action planning. Learning specialists work with students on any topic related to being successful academically, including study skills, time management, organizational skills and test taking.
