Hi Jason,

Check the archives for this listserv as this question comes up regularly and there are some research articles available.   Also if you would like some anecdotal direct experience feel free to contact me off list.  My contact info is below.  

We are a large urban 4-year Research I institution and until 3 years ago we had a highly decentralized model with different departments each running their own support services.   We are starting our 4th year in a Learning Commons with nearly all tutoring centralized in the Library, including our Writing Center.  I can't say enough about how much better this model has been for us than the decentralized approach.   Several key departments remain our collaborators:  Math, Chemistry, Biology, English, Athletics, etc.  Our tutoring services have both TA's and tutors from the collaborating departments as well as our own hires.  Happy to chat further about our experiences, data, etc.  Two years ago at NCLCA I offered a presentation on this focusing on the "Lessons Learned"

We have a need for data on the effectiveness of comprehensive and centrally located academic support services versus departmental or separate services. If any of you have knowledge of studies or examples that are available, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
