Welcome to UA&LC!

Members of my staff and I have developed this website to aid students in the quest for information, personal development, and academic success as well as a resource center for faculty and staff.

I am confident that you will be satisfied as you navigate through the wealth of information we have gathered.  You will see the latest updates to important academic topics, descriptions about special learning opportunities, and links to essential campus resources. 

We are still in the development stage so I hope that you will be patient as we work to complete the content and look of this new website. I also ask that you please send us feedback so that we can make adjustments when necessary.

If you see me around campus, please take a moment and introduce yourself.
