Title: Records of Barry University Learning Centers
Extent: 1 box (0.25 linear ft.)
The Learning Center was established in the mid-90s as a tutoring and writing center for all students, traditional and non-traditional, as well as a diagnostic testing agency for incoming students. It gradually expanded to include academic counseling available by appointment.
The Center for Advanced Learning (CAL) was initiated at Barry University in 1995 to help students with learning disabilities who have the intellectual potential and motivation to complete a four year university degree program or pursue graduate studies.
A dedication ceremony was held on January 29, 2009, for the Glenn Hubert Learning Center, at which time students from the following areas of the Learning Center expressed their gratitude to Mr. Hubert: Writing Center, Math Lab, and Center for Advanced Learning. From his time as an educator in the Miami-Dade County Public School system to his experiences as a Barry University student, Glenn Hubert had genuine appreciation for education and lifelong learning.
Flyers and leaflets describing the Learning Center in general; background information about the CAL, its philosophy and expectations; announcements for the dedication ceremony of the Glenn Hubert Learning Center and a copy of the dedication program, Jan. 29, 2009.
