Lakeland offers many Student Development services to our students, including the following:
Lakeland University advising is a collaborative process between students and faculty members based on the belief that each individual is capable of lifelong success.
Faculty advisors guide the development of students as they discover, clarify and work toward their educational and life goals. Academic advisors not only answer questions about campus resources, majors and course selection, but also assist in the development of strategies to help each student accomplish both short and long-term objectives.
Be sure to get to know your advisor and make the most of this key relationship. For more information about academic advising, send an e-mail inquiry to the advising director, Pam Engebretson, at
The mission of the Hayssen Academic Resource Center (HARC) is to address the academic support needs of the students, faculty, and staff of Lakeland University by providing information, skills training, and support in the areas of learning skills, critical thinking, information access, and assessment of students and their skills and competencies.
Our goal is to ensure the academic success of all Lakeland University students.
We work with all levels of students who need help, so they may be academically successful. Many students eventually become peer tutors, offering assistance to others who may benefit from this academic support service.
Our goal is to provide reasonable and effective accommodations for students who present appropriate documentation of a disability so that those students have an equal opportunity to achieve academic success and to do so in a way that is timely, respectful of the dignity of the student, and empowering for the student.

Writing Tips for ESL Students This printable handout, prepared by Purdue University's Online Writing Lab, is an appropriate starting place for any ESL writer and covers the essential basics. It emphasizes the important key strategies that anyone writing in academic English should rely upon (state a thesis, use a linear structure that includes good transitions, and be direct). Its tone is both clear and encouraging.
