About LSC

The Learning Strategies Center (LSC) is the central academic support unit for undergraduates at Cornell University. Our mission: through program offerings that encourage students to develop effective approaches to mastering the academic rigors of Cornell, the LSC strives to actively engage students in the learning process and support their efforts to become more successful and independent learners. We are committed to addressing the emerging needs of Cornell’s diverse student body- as they meet and exceed Cornell University’s high academic standards.

In a typical academic year, more than 20,000 student-visits are made to LSC office hours, tutorials, consultations,  workshops, and courses!

We encourage all Cornell undergraduates to take advantage of our services–because successful students ask for help when they need it.

Materials and Resources for Advisors and Faculty

If your role enables you to work directly with our students in a variety of capacities, please find helpful materials, resources, etc. here for Resources for Advisors and Faculty.  Please visit our homepage for resources, information on services, and more.

The learning strategies center offers peer led, study skills workshops by request. Peer facilitators provide workshops on calendaring and time management, preparing for prelims and finals, reading, taking notes, growth mindset, Zoom fatigue, and self-care. Students will learn how to work more efficiently (smarter, not harder!), get more sleep, manage procrastination and distractions, and work without pulling all nighters. Please contact LSC for more information.
