The Harvey Knowledge Center (HKC), formerly the Learning Assistance and Resource Center (LARC), supports students in achieving academic success. Using a learner-centered approach, we offer free academic consulting and seminars to support students’ skills and confidence in navigating the opportunities and challenges of their coursework. Our focus is to help students develop and leverage their own strategies for learning that can extend beyond the questions that bring them to our center. We have tools and resources to support any student’s academic goals. Learn more about what the HKC does at Radford University.

Our services include:

  • One-on-one assistance and small group academic coaching for writing, math, science courses, and more

  • Short-term and sustained academic coaching and skills groups

  • Coaching on how to transfer study skills to a university setting

  • Workshops and strategy guides on time management, test-taking approaches, and similar topics

Why make a visit to the HKC?

  • Our services in the HKC are free for Radford University students! 

  • We have great spaces for group study.

  • We can support all kinds of academic goals and collaborate with you in a variety of ways. (See What We Do for more details.)

  • Our coaches have a demonstrated record of success in the courses they support.

We look forward to your visit!
