The Math Center
The Math Center (Segerstrom Science Center 170) provides additional opportunities for APU students who need assistance at all levels of mathematics. Student tutors (mostly APU mathematics majors) are on site for walk-in tutoring from 2-8 p.m., Monday through Thursday, throughout each semester. The staff encourages learning mathematics by doing mathematics. The Math Center provides an excellent environment for math learners to develop and practice their math skills.
The Writing Center
Believing that clear communication builds community and demonstrates responsible stewardship of intellect, the Writing Center helps writers strengthen their abilities by learning the skills and concepts of strong writing in their respective disciplines.
To this end, the Writing Center staff:
- Treats all writers with dignity and respect.
- Teaches skills rather than simply corrects or fixes writing errors.
- Supports the faculty’s pedagogical objectives.
- Equips and trains in current methods and theories of writing instruction.
- Offers creative and individualized writing support for varying disciplines, genres, and objectives.
- Develops multilevel resources for writers, reference, print resources, workshops, and personal service.
- Provides collaborative and interactive services to foster an ever-growing community of critical thinkers and writers.
(Formerly known as the Youth Leadership Institute)
The Youth Leadership Institute (YLI) was originally the result of a five-year Lilly Endowment grant that concluded in December of 2006. YLI’s programs have since been adopted by Re/New Ministries. Though not officially affiliated with APU, Re/New seeks to carry on the YLI mission of training and mentoring current youth workers in the field, and encouraging emerging student leaders in vocational or marketplace service.
Throughout the year, Re/New hosts activities focused on developing high school students into the leaders of tomorrow while providing resources for current youth leaders to transform their youth groups into proving grounds for future leaders.
