Thomas More College Success Center

The mission of the Thomas More College Success Center is to accelerate success among all TMC students by promoting their classroom, community, career, and character development in support of a culture of student persistence, graduation, and life-long success.

The Thomas More College Success Center consists of three Institutes:

  1. The Dr. Anthony R. and Geraldine Zembrodt Institute for Academic Excellence (IAE) is committed to assisting students in achieving academic success. Through proactive counseling and support, the Institute for Academic Excellence develops disciplined, independent learners. It includes peer-to-peer tutoring, academic coaching, disability services, and counseling along with persistence counseling which includes intensive monitoring of at-risk students.

  2. The Institute for Learning Differences (ILD) is a fee-based academic support program designed for students with documented learning differences. This program includes individual learning plans, professional tutoring, individual mentoring/coaching, study skills support, as well as traditional accommodations all coordinated by a strategic learning specialist.

  3. The Institute for Career Development and Graduate School Planning (ICG) is dedicated to providing services that guide and teach students the process of career development, enabling effective career decision making and work-force readiness. It consists of career advising, graduate school advising, and supports the college's experiential learning requirement. This institute assists students with resume writing, interview skills, co-ops, internships, and networking skills along with a web-based job posting site for students and employers and an annual career and internship fair.
