Welcome to the Languages and Social Sciences Center

ATTENTION: The Languages and Social Sciences Center (LSSC) is open all days the campus is open (8 a.m. - 5 p.m.) during the period between semesters and breaks. You may still receive some tutoring assistance, language proficiency testing, computer/printer/scanner access, and a place to hangout or study during break periods. Tutoring schedules are always updated and posted under the LSSC Tutoring page.

You may also access center updates via our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/uccslssc). Yes, we have support for students online as well. For more information or if you have questions please contact the Interim Director, Sandy Ho 719.255.3691 or email sho@uccs.edu.

The Languages and Social Sciences Center (LSSC) offers FREE and OPEN support services in languages (Spanish, French, German, Japanese, American Sign Language, Chinese), Social Sciences (Anthropology, Geography, Economics, and Information Systems), and English Languages Learners (international students).

The mission of the LSSC is to empower student success through collaborative learning, individualized tutoring, leadership development, and meaningful dialogues.

The LSSC provides a supportive learning environment focused on language skills development, success in social sciences coursework, celebration of cultural diversity, and an inclusive campus community. We have a library of varied language resources to include books, magazines, VHS tapes, and DVDs. We administer diagnostic language proficiency testing. Our language conversation tables provides a safe space for students, faculty, and staff to come together and practice a language of interest while engaging in meaningful dialogues and cultural exchange.

Interested in study abroad? Interested in foreign films? Want to supplement your learning? Looking for language reference materials? The LSSC is a great place to do homework with computer access, interact with others who value diversity, and increase your success. Students may also request a meeting with the LSSC Interim Director or a Lead Tutor to review strategies and techniques to maximize learning and academic performance in and out of the classroom. We can assist with learning styles and preferences, study skills, note taking, time and energy management, organization, goal setting, test taking and test anxiety, stress management, and resource referrals! Online and distance education students are advised to contact the Interim Director to arrange tutoring support or conversation appointments.
