The Learning Center








Academic coaching is provided by the College and is free to all Daemen College students. Students contact academic coaches by email to set up a time to meet. All sessions are held at the Learning Center in the RIC. Students should bring their notes, books, and any questions they may have. We encourage students to meet with academic coaches early in the semester for the most effective use of this service.
