The Learning Center at East Central College, works in collaboration with the
athletic department in a few ways.  Student athletes are required to spend
five hours a week using the different resources housed in the TLC.  We track
and send weekly reports on their efforts to the athletic department.  This
year we also started doing an academic mini-camp for the student athletes
during their two-a-day practice schedule, prior to school starting. It was a
success and we will expand this service next summer.

Our campus has recently begun working with the CHAMPS program.
First-semester student athletes and those on probation or academically at
risk are required to seek assistance, anywhere from 2 to 4 hours per week
(depending on the sport, I think).  At first it was going to be a required
study hall, but we now log student athlete use of many academic services: my
tutoring center, the math lab, the writing center, SI attendance,
reading/study workshops, etc.  Several of us were already using TutorTrac;
by creating additional specific account codes and passwords, I can track
student athletes' use of most academic services on campus (including the
study hall location).  As a result, I can print weekly reports for each
coach/sport.  By giving the students plenty of options, the required hours
feel less like punishment for them, plus it removes the serious burnout
problem that might occur among staff/tutors if all student athletes were
required to do the same thing at the same time.
