It’s such a tricky question, but in terms of warm bodies, we have (this
term) 40 tutors and a total enrollment of around 12,000; we see
approximately 2,0000 students a year in about 6,000 sessions (those are
individual sessions — I’m not counting SI, as that’s a whole other kettle
of wax, ball of fish, whatever!).

So that’s 1:300 (tutors:students), or 1:50 (tutors:clients).

Hope that helps!

Best,

Rob

>>> Dear Colleagues,
>>>
>>> The PA/NJ chapter of the CRLA is hosting a free webinar on Friday,
>>>April 10,, 2015 at 12:30pm (EST). This year we are excited that
>>>Cynthia Carroll from the University of North Texas Health Science
>>>Center will speak about Using Cognitive Psychology Techniques with
>>>Students in the Academic Support Meeting. Cynthia is a licensed
>>>professional counselor with experience ranging from the clinical
>>>setting to the educational setting. She currently works at the UNT
>>>Health Science Center counseling students who are entering into
>>>various medical fields. She has worked with these students for over
>>>five years now, and as a result has gained extensive knowledge in how
>>>to handle difficult emotions, especially anxiety and stress. She is
>>>excited about this opportunity to share what she has learned over the
>>>years, to help you, to help others through you, and to learn from you
>>>as well.
>>> Since academic support specialists are on the front lines of student
>>>support, they are often the first to see students struggling with
>>>anxiety or depressed mood, possibly because of an emotional or
>>>personal issue. It is believed that by utilizing the methods of
>>>Cognitive Psychology, learning specialists can improve student
>>>support, academic progress, and retention, and help reduce the need
>>>for immediate, traditional therapy.
>>>
>>> During the webinar, Cynthia will demonstrate the importance of
>>>addressing the personal (cognitive and emotional) components of a
>>>student's success and how to provide students with initial cognitive
>>>information that can sometimes defer an immediate referral to the
>>>counseling center.  With this information, participants will be able
>>>to promote better academic functioning by training students on the
>>>topic of how to cope with intrusive cognitions. After this webinar,
>>>academic support professionals will be equipped with knowledge to
>>>positively influence students regarding personal, and consequently,
>>>academic concerns.
>>>
>>> To sign up for the webinar, please visit
>>>http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0b49a8af2eaa8-2015. We are limited
>>>to
>>> 100 log-ins for Adobe Connect, so we highly encourage those at the
>>>same institution to gather in one space to watch the webinar if at all
>>>possible.
>>>
>>> The day before the webinar, you will receive an email from me with
>>> the link you need to access the Adobe Connect space.
