                                I would agree with Rosie remarks below.  We,
too ,are under Student Affair at Bradley University. We are housed in the
campus library. The Center for Learning Assistance provides academic support
services for the student athletes, coordinates a program for students on
academic probation, directs and maintains the student tutoring program, and
are the contact office for students documented with a learning or physical
disability. Our professional staff are academic advisors for students who
have not declared a major along with other faculty and professional staff
advisors in other departments under student affairs. From our prospective it
has been an evolving and positive relationship between Student Affairs and
Academic Affairs over the past 15 years. As the director of the Center I
believe continued quality communication and marketing of our programs to the
campus community is necessary in order to provide the appropriate services
for our students regardless of who you report to.
