Welcome to the online scheduling tool for the Learning Commons. Our mission is to facilitate students' development of active and self-regulated learning through peer learning assistance.
This WCONLINE tool was originally procured years ago by the Writing Center. The scheduler's original Writing Center description exemplifies what we do here to support student development:
"The University of Portland Writing Center, directed by the Department of English's Integrated Writing Program, is a free resource for University of Portland students who wish to fine-tune their writing skills. Our staff of trained, knowledgeable Writing Assistants act as listeners, sounding-boards, and guides, rather than proofreaders, and they offer strategies for overall writing ability. Our goal is not just to inspire better papers, but better writers."
The Math Resource Center (MRC) also uses WCONLINE for its by-appointment tutoring that augments the MRC's traditional walk-in peer tutoring program.
