Located on the first level of Lane Library, the new Franzen Center for Academic Success continues the effort to better coordinate student tutoring services, improve resource allocation and provide more visible offerings for all students seeking tutoring at Ripon College.
The centralization of all academic support services ensures students have easy access to resources, and allows Ripon College to meet student demand for these services. The Center plans to expand student success programming, such as PLUS group tutoring sessions for introductory courses, study skills workshops and academic coaching.
The Center, named after Mark and Janice Franzen ’83, is a state-of-the-art learning environment dedicated to the support of tutoring, collaboration and studying on campus. Beginning in Fall 2019, the Franzen Center for Academic Success houses all campus academic support offerings under the direction of Brenda Gabrielson. Highly trained student tutors compose the staff of the Center.
