I have worked at a few large research institutions and I can provide the
following:

1.  Rutgers University has learning resource centers that provide
centralized tutoring at each of its 3 campuses (New Brunswick, Newark and
Camden).  The New Brunswick campus has a writing center and thus tutoring is
partially decentralized.
2.  Temple University has a math-science tutoring center and a separate
writing center.  Also some departments offer course content tutoring and
some do not so it is mainly decentralized.
3.  Drexel University has a Learning Center that provides tutoring for all
courses except English Writing.  The Writing Center does all writing
tutoring so this is partially decentralized as well.

Hope that helps.

P.S. By the way I will be posting a job announcement soon as we will be
looking for a full time learning specialist here.

Subject: Centralized vs. Decentralized tutoring programs

Hi all,

I am trying to get some information and numbers for large research
universities to determine whether the preferred model of tutoring is
centralized with one department responsible for managing peer tutoring or
decentralized with various academic departments managing their own
tutoring.

Thanks in advance,
