CAS - Welcome Letter

Dear SCTCC students, staff and faculty:

Welcome to the Mary Stangler Center for Academic Success. We offer free drop-in and scheduled tutoring services to all St. Cloud Technical and Community College students, faculty and staff. Our goal is to provide an inclusive learning environment that fosters respect and provides assistance to learners of all abilities and backgrounds within the SCTCC community. 

For every individual seeking assistance, we focus on providing excellent tutoring services as well as academic support to foster success. Our holistic approach to tutoring encourages creative, independent thinking and problem solving- essential tools for success in college and beyond.

The Mary Stangler Center for Academic Success is committed to success of all who use our services. Since our beginning in 1974, we have sought to complement classroom instruction by reinforcing concepts and thought-processes. This strong service focus, coupled with workshops, review sessions and face-to-face and online individual tutoring, has enabled us to assist all learners within SCTCC.

We invite you to come in and see what we have to offer you as a student, staff or faculty member and look forward to meeting you. 

Kerby Plante

Director, Mary Stangler Center for Academic Success
