McCann Learning Center

The McCann Learning Center, located on the main level of Cramblet Hall, provides a welcoming place for the members of the Bethany community to enrich their learning and teaching skills.

The mission of the center is three-fold:

  • to enhance the learning skills of all students
  • to transform the learning experience of students with learning disabilities
  • to support the heightened performance of faculty and staff

Equipped with state of the art technology, the Center houses Academic Support Services, the Writing Center, the Program for Academic and Social Success (PASS), and Disability Services. The Center provides a helpful, relaxed environment that promotes effective studying and academic success.

Academic Support Services: Academic Support Services are available to all Bethany students. Student resources include Supplemental Instruction, study groups, individual content tutors, course-specific software, study and meeting rooms, and study skills media and instruction. Individual and small-group study skills workshops are also provided.

Writing Center: The Writing Center is available to assist students with the writing process from generating ideas through publishing products. The professionals and student writing assistants who staff the Writing Center are committed to providing students with the support necessary to become competent writers. The Center is also a place where students can informally share their writings with other students.

Program for Academic and Social Success (PASS): PASS is a specifically-designed program for students identified as having specific learning disabilities and attention deficit disorders. Students participate in 1:1 appointments with certified, experienced learning specialists to develop the metacognitive and multisensory strategies necessary for college success. A separate application process is required for PASS, and an additional fee is charged, based upon the level of services.

PASS Application

Disability Services: Students with documented disabilities are provided accommodations on a case-by-case basis in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
