It may also be linked to specific classes or marketing. We found that we did a lot more marketing in the fall and didn't realize it.

Have you compared the decrease in the usage of your services to the decrease in overall enrollement?  I am sure they are closely connected.  I hope this helps out.

Thanks for starting this thread, Jeffrey.
This statement caught my eye, "I'd like to see more students use our resources, especially in the spring when we experience a significant drop in utilizationI'd like to see more students use our resources, especially in the spring when we experience a significant drop in utilization."

We see this, too, and I'm wondering how common this is, and to what extent (e.g. Percentage decrease) centers are experiencing this. We see it, but there is a narrative about it that it is closely connected with our unusual spring academic calendar.

If your Center does not see a drop in usage, I'd be curious to know whether there are strategies you use in the spring term.

Many thanks for your input. I'm happy to collate responses and post to the list.
Best,
Nic

Subject: Learning assistance marketing efforts

Good morning members of the LRNASST community,
I'm working with a marketing intern on developing marketing strategies for our Learning Commons<https://www1.up.edu/learningcommons/index.html> at the University of Portland with the goal of enhancing visibility, improving perceptions, and increasing utilization. I'd appreciate any stories about marketing efforts that have resulted in increases in utilization by populations that had not used your program.

*         What kinds of outreach efforts appear to be working for you?

*         How have new outreach efforts changed both utilization and the perceptions of your programs?

*         What have you found to work well and what hasn't worked for your program?
I'd like to see more students use our resources, especially in the spring when we experience a significant drop in utilization.
The University of Portland is a small private comprehensive university with just over 3,700 students. Our Learning Commons had 1,168 unique visitors and a total of 4,127 visits this past academic year.
I look forward to hearing your stories.
All the best,
Jeffrey White, M.A., M.S.
