Learning Support

A picture of a bookstore associate assisting a studentBack a few hundred years ago, John Dunne said, “No man is an island. . . .”  The same can be said for TSTC’s instructors.  Numbering in the hundreds, multiple employees, often invisible to students (a magician’s disappearing act has nothing on us!), stand behind every classroom instructor at TSTC and make the magic possible.   Collectively, these employees conjure up the conditions that create an effective learning environment.

Many of TSTC’s support staff provide services directly to students.  After all, even would-be wizards can’t concentrate on learning unless their needs are met first.  Employees serving in these roles include those providing emotional, physical and financial support (e.g., counseling, safety, housing, financial aid, food services),  transition and college entrance support (e.g. academic counseling, admissions, testing, success centers, and placement or career services), and social support (e.g., recreation center, clubs, Skills USA, student groups, and student ambassadors). 

While those who work directly with students are certainly more visible, an often invisible host of other employees work off-stage, behind the scenes, and perform some miracles themselves.  These are the employees for whom other employees are customers.  The customer service they provide includes secretarial support, directing entire divisions, project management, accounting, information technology support, landscaping, facility and appliance upkeep and repair, safety, and many other employee services.
