FAYETTEVILLE –The Office of Student-Athlete Success announced that its tutor center received CRLA certification on Friday.
"We partnered with our campus’ Enhanced Learning Center (ELC), which is the tutor program for non-student-athletes on campus, in our attempt to ensure our Office of Student-Athlete Success was operating in accordance with university standards," said Eric Wood, Associate Athletic Director of Student-Athlete Success. "This certification is our first step to being certified by the National Association of Athletic Academic Advisors (N4A)."
According to the most updated listings on the CRLA website, Arkansas is one of just two programs in the SEC to have its athletic tutoring program certified. Attaining this certification shows Arkansas’ program is one of high quality that adheres to external standards in the tutoring field.
The partnership with the ELC has created a cohesive tutoring program, where all tutors on-campus are meeting the same standards across the board.
